Thank goodness for reprints! With both DC and Marvel destroying everything for the millionth time, it's nice to look back at a simpler time when art was classic, storylines and dialog were hopeless dated (even though at the time we didn't realize it!), and everyday people could headline a title. This wonderful look back at a time when Marvel through Roy Thomas and Stan Lee thought their female audience needed some books of their own. And so Night Nurse joined the Cat and Shanna the She-Devil as part of the Marvel line-up. And although the experiment failed after only a few issues, all the stars became mainstays in the Marvel Universe. So sit back, take a deep breath and slow your internal clocks down to enjoy the adventures of the Night Nurse!
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
