The Blonde Bomber

Despite the image of the aircraft in this title page, it appears The Blonde Bomber was not a bomber pilot.  Insteand, she was "ace newsreel camerawoman" Honey Blake, whose occupation allowed her ample opportunity for comic book-worthy adventure.  This story, posted on Four Color Shadows, was published in 1942.
