Mlle. Marie never really got a fair shake in the Bronze Age, appearing here and there but never really earning a title of her own. Maybe it was the boys own mentality of War books that made her less exciting to readers than Sgt. Rock or The Viking Commando, but that's exactly why I liked her. Sexy french babe fighting Germans for the Resistance? You betcha. Maybe we can get a time machine and get a young Juliette Binoche to play her in the movie.
Plus, Marie was drawn by Mad's very own Mort Drucker, being as great at serious adventure as he was at everything else. Here's The Battle Doll in two adventures from the back pages of Rock's book.
