LADY LUCK #86 (#1), Quality Comics 1949. *1ST ISSUE, GILL FOX cvr* #SmashComics

Read this online. It was actualy 3 very good superheronine/crimebusting tales told. Granted, the exciting cover was somewhat misleading but it also hints at the even more impressive inside art effort inside, too. Lady Luck (in story 1&3&5) has a clever with and clearly knows how to handle herself. Might have to Google more of beautiful Brenda Banks and her superheroine alter ego. Better quality than many a weekly book from DC&Marvel these days.

Story 1: "Lady Luck" defends Raoul, a prospective home owner -and map finder- from unscrupulous realty crooks.
Story 2: "The Count" featured a the misadventures of Count Di Change (punny!), Raoul from the first story, victimiized in an unfortunate slapstick sequence of wardrobe switcheroos 'til his happy ending.
Story 3: "Lady Luck" busts up a pyramind scheme/money scam.
Story 4: "The Bookworm" is a text story featuring Miss Mibbs.
Story 5: "Lady Luck" stops a jewel thief at a charity ball.

Can anyone know synopsis of the origin offhand? Does anyone know who now owns the rights to her character?

Lady Luck is one of my favorite Golden age heroines. She seems to be like the Spirit - a crime fighter solving cases that could occur in real life. Enjoy the supporting characters and the dialogue which run together smoothly. It is amazing how a good story could be told in such a short amount of pages - a lost art/craft.
