Chicago Spanking Review

Soldiers of Fortune #2

---> Comics Gallery 2

This is a rather long story at 10 pages, so even though we're only going to bring you 6 pages of it we'd better show the spanking panel straight away. Basically, our spanker Ace Carter has more than enough justification to give spankee Fatima a good, long OTK disciplinary spanking, but he only gets in one swat using a rifle butt as an improvised paddle. It's hard to explain Fatima bending over as far as she is as anything but compositional convenience on the part of the artist, but since we like to see the spankee well bent over, we're not complaining.

Butt-to-butt contact as Ace Carter uses his rifle butt to paddle bad girl Fatima. Art by Frank Bolle and Leonard Starr. From the collection of and art identified by JVJ. Posted by the Web-Ed on 04/18/2014.

This is another of our original discoveries, being revealed here on CSR for the first time anywhere. Soldiers of Fortune is a relatively obscure title and somewhat rare to the best of our knowledge - very little is known about two of its twelve issues (this is one of the other ten). It was published by American Comics Group, a small publisher which up to now had supplied only two known spankings, both in the Cookie strip of Cookie getting the hairbrush from his father - not exactly class-A material. The strip of interest here is Ace Carter Adventurer, and it somewhat resembles "The Diamond of Death" in The Saint #5 in its rugged, unflappable hero, valuable jewelry, and exotic locale. And like that famous spanking comic, there is some uncertainty about the art. JVJ, from whose fabulous collection these scans were taken, believes that Leonard Starr did the inks over Frank Bolle's pencils (Bolle did the recently-posted Lovers' Lane #29). We're not sure - we see the resemblance to Bolle's style, but we also see some differences, for example in the characters' eyebrows, so either Starr's inks tend to overwhelm the pencils or else he did them himself, as some have suspected.

It turns out to all have been part of a plot to lure him into the jeweler's shop so he could be enlisted into doing some work for Fatima and Ahmed Ali, who pretends to be the owner.

Page 10 of Ace Carter (click to double-size). During the fight, a secret switch is tripped that causes the walls to start closing in on them. Ace and Fatima climb to the top of one wall and Ace keeps shooting at one gear until he breaks the mechanism. But it's too late to help Fatima's gang, and Ace isn't too sentimental about Fatima herself when he cheerily sends her off to Cairo to be hanged for murder. We'd have let her off with an 18-stroke bare-bottom caning ourselves.
