Torchy's first appearance was as a comic strip in the Fort Hamilton Base newspaper in 1944. Her comic book debut was in Quality Comics' 'Doll Man' #8 in 1946. She was created by Bill Ward in 1944.
Torchy Todd, was the blonde bombshell that all the men loved. She began her long and colourful life mainly as a morale booster for the US Army. She is one of the most risqué comic characters of The Golden Age!
Torchy's depiction changed from story to story. Sometimes she was naive and didn't realise the effect she had on men. Other times she understood that effect, but couldn't quite get her head around the reason why she had it. Yet in other stories, Torchy deliberately used her assets to her own advantage.
