·Patsy Walker starring

Notes: Patsy and Nancy, wanting to become models, visit the agency of "John Rober[t] Glowers," an allusion to John Robert Powers (1892-1977), and "Larry Runover," possibly an allusion to the "Harry Hanover" character in Millie the Model Comics. Eventually, they appear on the cover of Miss America. The white-haired gentleman in panel 5 on page 33 may be intended for publisher Martin Goodman.
