Spring Training is about to begin for Major League Baseball...
...but, no matter the season, the pulchritudinous Phantom Lady always hits a home run with us!
This tawdry tale from All Top Comics #16 (1949) was probably written by Ruth Roche, definitely penciled and partially-inked by Jack Kamen, and partially-inked by Matt Baker.
Oddly, though the Phantom Lady is based in Washington DC (her dad is a US Senator), the writers didn't use the existing Washington Senators or a surrogate like the "DC Representatives" or the "Washington Congressmen" or somesuch.
For those keeping chronological score, we skipped the second story from Phantom Lady #22, since it featured our heroine traveling to London and getting involved in the 1948 Olympics.
We'll be running that one in late July, around the time the Olympics open.
Next up will be the final Fox Comics issue of Phantom Lady, then her final All Top Comics appearance.
After that, we'll present her Ajax/Farrell stories from both her own title and her back-up tales in Wonder Boy!
