Item:283338007903This auction is for SUPERGIRL #3 from 1973. Following a decade of back up action and three years headlining Adventure Comics, Supergirl finally received her own series in 1972. The series starred Kara Zor-El / Linda Lee as Supergirl and continued her adventures from Adventure Comics. Issues #1-5 included a Zatanna back up feature. In Supergirl #3, Linda Danvers loses a date with her current swain, Bob Lewis. An actor named Frankie asks to take his place, since his current girlfriend, Mary Ann Brooks, stood him up, while crying over the phone. Supergirl investigates and finds that Mary Ann's father, botanist Albert Brooks, has been charged with the murder of "Lucky Coin" Lacey, whose body was found on his estate grounds. Supergirl finds the bodies of three other gangsters on the estate. But she also finds the one witness who can establish that Brooks was in his presence at the time of the murder, and Brooks is released. Later, Brooks is kidnapped by the real "Lucky Coin" Lacey and his crony, a plastic surgeon named Doc. The phony "Lacey" was another gang rival, made to look like Lacey by Doc. Now Doc has changed Lacey into a look-alike for Brooks, and they intend to murder him and have Lacey take his place. Supergirl arrives in time to save Brooks and capture Lacey and Doc. But, since Mary Ann is now reunited with Frankie, Supergirl loses her date to the party. Written by Cary Bates with art by Art Saaf. In the back-up Zatanna feature, Zatanna puts on a magic show at Midvale Orphanage as a favor for Supergirl. But all her magic tricks seem to go awry, until she learns she is being contacted by a little boy's ghost, asking for help. Written by Cary Bates with art by Don Heck.
