PHANTOM LADY'S TWICE-TOLD TALES "Killer Clown!" & "Success is No Accident!"

Culture and crime mix when Phantom Lady goes to the opera... a tale from All-Top Comics, this time from #9, featuring the usual high-quality good-girl art of Matt Baker.
When the plot (and much of the dialogue) was reused several years later with new art in Ajax/Farrell's Wonder Boy 18 (1956), the results were not quite as exciting...
Man, that "schoolgirl gym" outfit is really quite a change from the previous version.
For the record, this was the final new appearance of Phantom Lady until DC's Justice League of America #107, where her original Quality Comics incarnation was revived with other Quality heroes as the Freedom Fighters!
We'll be back next week with another "Twice-Told Tale" of Phantom Lady!
featuring goodies emblazoned with cover art that Fredric Wertham railed against in Seduction of the Innocent.
