Reading Room: SPITFIRE SAUNDERS "Whip"'s the original (and longer) version of the tale, starring a totally-different heroine from Spitfire Comics #132 (1944)!
Spitfire Saunders made only two appearances, in successive issues of Elliot Comics' Spitfire Comics, which despite the high numbering of this issue (#132), only had two issues!
The art on this story about an extremely competent female spy is by journeyman artist Paul Cooper, working for the Iger Studios, who also supplied art to Ajax/Farrell (where the re-worked version appeared) and Fox Comics.
It's unknown who did the art modifications on the Phantom Lady version of the tale, but odds are Ruth Roche did the extensive editing and re-scripting.

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