Review: 1st Issue Special #4- LADY COP!

1st Issue Special #4
Originally uploaded by Heidi Meeley

Liza Warner is your every day, average gal until she witnesses the heinous murder of her roommates. Driven by natural police-like attributes and a desire to good, she enrolls in Police Academy and becomes….wait for it… Lady Cop.

Dressed in sensible shoes, and a 1970’s style police woman knee length skirt and top, Liza takes on criminals in her NYPD beat. No desk job for this lady- Liza fights crime without a net. I loved every minute of it, other then her boyfriend, who took her to the beach and tried to get her to give up her career. It’s the 1970’s, Buster!

After reading Lady Cop in First Issue Special #4, I felt empowered. Liza didn’t let the bad guys intimidate her and she could take care of herself. She helped a father see eye-to-eye with his “new school” daughter. She kicked some bad guy ass. To top it off, she wasn’t dressed in an overtly sexy manner, but she was fit and attractive.

I want to be Lady Cop when I grow up. You have got to check this book out! I just want to know one thing, though. Why weren’t there more adventures from this sassy, bold woman? I would have read it!

Special Note: I first saw Lady Cop at Seven Hells!, so a belated thanks to Devon for the heads up.

What no porn face or fake boobs...

See that's why the comic book female form in the 70s rocked!

Swinebread, amen to that. Lady Cop kicks ass! I would love to see many more adventures from her, but I am fearful her skirt would be too short and her blouse would be conveniently unbuttoned. It is the outfit, sensible shoes, and intelligence that make Lady Cop work.

Once again, Amen!

Isn't Lady Cop the greatest?

Devon, Lady Cop RULES!! I had wanted to read the comic after seeing you talk about her on your blog. I too fell in love with her. She is incredible!!

Thank you for the tip!

Isn't she now Chief of Police for Ivy Town in Gail Simone's Atom book?

Yes she is. And she wears pants!
