The Daily Comic Book Coffee, number 49: Femforce #44
Let’s take another look at Femforce. Having been exposed to a flawed version of the chemical compound that originally gave Ms. Victory her powers, the Femforce team leader was transformed into the anti-social bad girl Rad. Breaking away from Femforce, Rad led a wild, hedonistic lifestyle.
Rad recently lost a bundle in Atlantic City, and so reluctantly agrees to create a youth formula for a wealthy woman who promises to pay her a fortune. What Rad does not realize is that the elderly lady and her assistant are actually Lady Luger and Fritz Von Voltzman, who she fought as Ms. Victory back during World War II. The Nazi war criminals are plotting to duplicate the chemical, and they slip Rad a drugged cup of coffee to incapacitate her.
Frank Turner got his start in the mid 1980s working for black & white independent companies Graphik Publikations, Eternity and Malibu. In the early 1990s he drew a number of stories for AC Comics, as well as a few jobs for Millenium Publications, doing some very nice work at both companies. I certainly liked the art he did for Femforce. Turner then worked for Marvel between 1992 and 1994 as an inker on several different titles.
Following the mid-1990s implosion in comic books Turner reportedly worked for Sony Animation in California for a period of time, after which he moved back to his native Birmingham, AL. Unfortunately he passed away in 2008 at the much too young age of 47.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/the-daily-comic-book-coffee-number-49-femforce-44/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/The-Daily-Comic-Book-Coffee-logo-600x257.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/The-Daily-Comic-Book-Coffee-logo-150x64.pngColumnNewsThe Daily Comic Book Coffee#dailycomicbookcoffee
