Slave Girl Comics  (1949) 
A series published by Avon Publications that lasted for two issues. It detailed the adventures of Malu, the titular slave girl.

Avon Publications was a paperback book and comic book publisher. It today exists only as an imprint of HarperCollins.

Avon Books was founded in 1941 by the American News Corporation to create a rival to Pocket Books. They hired Joseph and Edna Meyers to establish the company. They bought out J.S. Ogilvie Publications, a pulp magazine publisher, and renamed it “Avon Publications.” They also got into comic books.

From at least 1945 through the mid-1950s, Avon published comic books. Its titles included horror fiction, science fiction, Westerns, romance comics, war comics and funny-animal comics.
