    I wonder why she’s just standing there in the middle of a forest, ignoring a volcanic eruption?

    I wonder why she has that terrifying blank-faced, dead-eyed stare?

    I wonder if I should run?

    Dear mother,

    This Hawaiian holiday is not all it’s cracked up to be. Wish you were here.


    1970s Isla St. Clair.

    Let’s talk about those… leggings? Thigh-high boots? Or maybe she just happened to get her legs stuck in a pair of perfectly sized PVC pipes?

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    The other two women of wonder are battling beasts. This one looks like she’s gonna kill her boyfriend for booking a campsite without toilets.

    Now featuring HOT PANTS!

    Lorene Yarnell was everywhere in the 70’s.

  7. Francis Boyle Says:

    I’m not surprised she’s pissed off. Even Lara Croft would be embarrassed to be seen in that outfit.

    It’s just funny to think about . . . .

    Bruce Jenner is a New … or Fairly Recent … Woman of Wonder.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – I’d buy that!

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer—I think Chinese GSS is bringing out a pirated edition.

  12. Tor Mented Says:

    Ellison says the book is locked up, set in stone and heading to the publisher.

    I’m going to throw my hat into the ring of comments on this woman’s odd pant-short-what have yous. I think she’s wearing cargo pants with unzippable sections, and has unzipped the legs so they make shorts, but is still wearing the rest of the legs on her legs.

    In other words, I’m at as much of a loss to explain this as you are.

  14. THX 1138 Says:

    I thought the clothing on her legs were her satin tights as she’s fighting for our rights?

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This woman has never wondered about anything in her life.
    Except possibly where the other mime was. (@fred)

    70’s publishers: “Okay, fine, we’ll give the broads a book of their own, but it’s gotta have crappy covers. We save the good ones for men.”

    At least on this one she’s mostly covered and not near some beast.

    Maybe her glum expression is b/c she’s realized something untoward has happened to her trousers, just when she needs to flee the volcano.

    @Tor: Honestly, it looks more like Bruce than Caitlyn.

    Pamel Sargent’s credits are a bit odd. Why not just say “Edited by”?
