Reading Room: PHANTOM LADY "Ace of Spades"

The Damsel of Darkness meets her first costumed villainess...
in this Western-themed, never-reprinted tale from Phantom Lady #20!
Phantom Lady takes a couple of tricks, horsemanship, lassoing and sharpshooting, from another Golden Age heroine, the Black Cat, who was secretly movie actress/stunt girl Linda Turner, and thus had a reason to be skilled in those talents, which most modern women didn't perform.
Curiously, Sandra Knight had never demonstrated proficiency in any of those skills before...
Script probably by Ruth Roche, art definitely by Matt Baker.

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