Reading Room: PHANTOM LADY "World's Meanest Crook"

A startling story ripped from today's headlines...
...but it's from Phantom Lady #15, published in 1947!
Talk about "the more things change, the more they stay the same"!
Meet the menace of the man called...Foreclose!
If only our national economy could be corrected so easily...
According to the Grand Comics Database, while there's some Matt Baker work in the story, they believe the majority of it is by someone else, as yet unidentified.
I think it's primarily Baker with someone else assisting, but that's just me...  ;-)
Phantom Lady will return in...
"Red Rain"

featuring goodies emblazoned with cover art that Fredric Wertham railed against in Seduction of the Innocent.
