Also, an especially interesting Golden Age heroine I recently found out about, the Headless Horseman from 1940.

Welcome aboard!

That's an interesting teaser, EM. Since that sure looks like a guy, minus head!, I'd like to know where this character appeared.

How many of those international heroines are public domain?  I'd like to read about TNT Tina and TNT Tom.

Not sure. I somehow expect their comics werenít renewed due to obscurity though.

TNT Tina is TNT Tom's cousin.  The strip's title was TNT Tom and appeared in Gerald G Swan comics in the 1950's. Tina appears to always be referred to as simply Tina. If you fancy a look at some stories, my compilation can be found on CB+, here:-
https://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=70697
At the moment, these seem to be the only strips found and scanned.
De Kat was a Dutch "beeldroman/beeldverhaal" a tiny wee comic about 10 1/2 x 7 centimetres with often 1 illo per page, from the late '40's. Drawn by Henk Albers. De Kat was resurrected in the last few years in a bigger format, but a lot more adult content.  Lambiek has an interesting read on beeldromans:-
