Gale Allen And Her All Girl Squadron

Nothing conjures up memories of the 1940's more than a crew of all girl space rangers wearing two-piece space bathing suits patrolling space and fighting space convicts, space aliens and space bats (yes, bats!) with space swords.  I posted another issue of Gale Allen about five years ago, and it seemed like a good time for another.  This edition, posted on Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine, is from 1942.
