Patsy Pinup was a filler character whose adventures were told in 1-page stories (or "pin-ups") throughout early Fiction House publications. She was a model who would do anything from solving a crime to saving a drowning Hollywood actor... and look good while doing it!

Public Domain Appearances

Although billed as "posing in every issue of Jumbo Comics," she actually only appeared 9 times:

  • Jumbo Comics #94-95, 99
  • Fight Comics #47-51, 62


  • Over the course of her appearances, there were a few different artists/writers credited with her stories but, most were most likely pseudonyms and thus, could have been men (which was common at the time).
