Suffrajitsu: Mrs. Pankhurst's Amazons

London, 1914: The leaders of the radical women's rights movement are fugitives from the law. Their last line of defense is the secret society of "Amazons": women trained in the martial art of bartitsu and sworn to defend their leaders from arrest and assault. In this issue: A smashing tale of street-fighting suffragettes. The Amazons' tactics and fighting skills are put to the test in escalating conflicts with the London and Glasgow police. After a series of daring escapes and battles with the police, the stakes rise dramatically when the Amazons are forced into a deadly game of cat and mouse against an aristocratic, utopian cult . . . Presenting: • Persephone Wright, a "fallen woman" who will protect those she loves at all costs • "Flossie" Le Mar, a rough-diamond adventuress from New Zealand • Katie "Sandwina" Brumbach, a fiercely loyal Austrian wrestler and strongwoman • Toupie Lowther, a cunning, cross-dressing woman of means • Judith Lee, a proud Anglo-Chinese socialite and amateur detective • Kitty Marshall, a quick-witted teenager who keeps her radicalism secret from her wealthy family • Miss Sanderson, an enigmatic "governess" with an appetite for violence
