Reading Room PHANTOM LADY "Case of the Swindling Eye"

The superheroine who's an eyeful catches con artists using glass eyes... this tale from All-Top Comics #11!
While there are aspects to the story (probably by Ruth Roche) like how, on page 3, Don doesn't recognize Phantom Lady as Sandra Knight! (He was looking at her face, not her...headlights...although the way the word balloons are arranged in page 3, panel 5 leaves no doubt as to what the editor thinks the reader wants to see!
The cheesecake "good girl" art is, of course by Matt Baker, who did almost all the Phantom Lady stories!

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