“READ THE STORY INSIDE!”

This comic book has reached the point where its cover tagline hyperbole feels as desperate for attention as an early dial-up era webpage with an animated GIF with blinking text that says “Click Here!”

Death Trap Week concludes with our heroine in danger of being burned at the stake… next to a bundle of dynamite… at a highly flammable petroleum refinery… while killer birds attack gunmen on rooftops and a guy in a fedora punches a guy in a sombrero…
Or in other words, just another typical Friday for the Blonde in a Red Dress.

Gasp! Not only is this secret spy base filled with flammable oil drums and a hand-cranked girl-squishing gear wheel of doom, it also lacks proper safey railings! Good thing the Blue Beetle is here to punish those who flout proper safety regulations!

The Blonde in a Red Dress is so relieved at her timely rescue by a vigilante heroine that she doesn’t even ask what a name like “Miss Fury” has to do with a costume that has cute cat ears on the cowl.
