  First appearance of the most seen supporting character of the Golden Age. The pencil work on her is awesome. And she kicks ass! I wonder how she managed to keep her hairdo after that dive. Must be a super-power she has.

Everett is already my best. His characters emote so well.

  Like the character development here, and even the cliffhanger ending!

  3 stars for the 1st app of Betty Dean! I recommend listening to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" while reading this issue!!!

Lens Flare - The Chief's face looks odd on p1,p3...

Modern Woman - I first thought "Roscoe" might be a pocket rocket!!!

Diver Down - I can't believe Namor would leave Lovely Betty Dean for a bunch of seamen...

Dominant - Man, Betty didn't waste any time getting Namor under control!!!

'Nuff Said - "We'll use Betty Dean--she's an expert swimmer, easy on the eyes, and a darn good cop!"-Inspector Peterson
