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

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:-
