Good Girl Art Quarterly 13
The Femforce girls are back in the lead in color as She-Cat and Synn star in “Shopping Maul”. A day off and a trip to the mall babysitting Synn sounds like a drag to She-Cat, “till she sees something she really wants to buy. When theives who grab it manage to escape the ‘Cat, it seems like a total loss, until Synn saves the day, without even using her powers. A goofy, day-in-the-life-of story plotted by Tillman Smoot, scripted and drawn by Mark(Magneto)Heike, and inked by Chris(Warrior Nun Areola)Allen.

Then, it’s more Fox Features perfect pulchritude with Matt Baker back on a Phantom Lady story from P. L. #18, June, 1948, “Ghosts, Galleons and Gold”, followed by Quality’s madcap lovely from the pages of Modern Comics, Torchy- illustrated by Gill Fox.
