Atomic Robo: The Flying She-Devils of the Pacific #1

In 1951 Atomic Robo finds himself shot down while flying a new prototype jet over the South Pacific. Just as unexpectedly comes help from a group of female pilots all wearing jet packs.

After being forced to crash land and being rescued by the She-Devils of the Pacific out intrepid robotic scientific adventurer discovers there's much more going on in the South Pacific than he knew about. Years after the end of WWII, mercenaries have set about claiming weapon and supply depots left unguarded by both Japan and the Allies.

Using whatever they can find, including the cobbled together jet packs, a giant air ship and a secret island base in the Pacific, the She-Devils (women who refused to return home to household chores after the war ended) protect the territory from pirates and mercenaries.

A fun first issue to start the new series with an unexpected (but humorous) chauvinistic slant from Atomic Robo. Worth a look.
