Lady Danger finds a needle in a haystack

Valerie Vaughn, aka Lady Danger, doesn't need a disguise, doesn't need super powers. She's smart, resourceful, and need I mention, a real cutie. She starred in a back-up feature in Sensation Comics in the late 1940s. This fine, fun story is written by editor Robert Kanigher and drawn by Carmine Infantino. It originally appeared in Sensation Comics #87 in 1949; this printing is from 1971, Lois Lane #117.

Thanks to Karswell of The Horrors Of It All for sharing the Lois Lane comic. The lead story is drawn by Werner Roth, who did the excellent Lorna the Jungle Girl story I showed a few days ago, and who wouldn't love Lois's hot lace-up boots on the cover?

Other Lady Danger stories I've posted are here, here, and here.

Totally forgot I sent this to you!

I love Lady Danger! I have the issues of Lois Lane you scanned these reprints from but they are buried in storage. I'd love to have the whole run of her stories.

In an earlier LD post you remarked how you're glad that she was never revived by DC. I think I know the perfect creator to handle her revival-Darwyn Cooke! He would do a great job with her.
