Another Wonder Woman Wednesday!

Wonder Woman has her own lasso used against her by Big Ike McGlone, a gangster the Amazon tried to rehabilitate at a clinic.  When McGlone was arrested instead, it turned him to thoughts of vengeance and led him to parter with two other enemies of Wonder Woman, jealous Mayor Prude and Police Chief Smack.

This terrible trio, afflicted by “green imps” of envy, force the heroine to steal money and then abandon her to a raging fire.  Only a telepathic distress signal and the timely intervention of the Holiday Girls allows Wonder Woman to escape and corral the criminals.
