Linda Turner (movie star) is the Black Cat in the 40's, and was a hit with all the GI's who collected her books for companionship during the lonely nights spent in the many foxholes across Europe. She would go on to get her own title after the war ended, but appeared in Speed from #17 to #44 while the war was still on. This issue came out in 1943 and is essentially a "war" story. Linda and her film company are making a movie aboard a Navy battleship. On board is a Lieutenant who has some highly classified documents with him -- one night he is found stabbed to death and the documents missing. Linda changes to the Black Cat and investigates. In the midnight darkness aboard ship, she stumbles into her romantic interest Rick, who out of reflex action, swings at her shadow, and knocks her down. She is stunned, but not unconscious. He realizes his mistake, apologizes, and together they solve the crime and bring the murderer to justice as well as recover the classified documents. Not a whole lot to look at but there is one facinating pic of her changing into her Black Cat costume. A little something to whet the appetite. Have fun!!
