Reading Room: PHANTOM LADY "Subway Slayer"

As a New Yorker, I can tell you riding the subway is always an adventure... the hottest heroine of the Golden Age finds out!
The art credits for this story from All Top Comics #12 are questionable, as most believe that the penciler was not Matt Baker, though his inking, especially on the female figures is pretty obvious.
Jack Kamen was doing work for Fox, so this may have been an early pencil job reworked by Baker.
And, the story was most likely by Ruth Roche.

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