"Maid of the Mist" comic

The origin of the Seneca "Maid of the Mist" legend is told in an old comic book:

Strange Worlds #6 ~ Jan/1952

Comment:  Note the sexy Indian maidens, the studly Indian braves, the pink skins, the feathers in headbands, the chief in a headdress, and the teepees. All this in a story set around Niagara Falls in western New York.
