Welcome back to Groove City! Today we're digging one of the rapturous reprints from DC's twenty-five cent, fifty-two page era of 1971/72--Dr. Pat! Who dat? Why, Dr. Pat was part of the "new" Sensation Comics (#94) of November/December, 1949, which dumped all the male superheroes and replaced them with romance strips and female adventurers. So you're gettin' not only the intro, but also the origin of Dr. Pat courtesy the middle of Lois Lane #116 (September 1971). Written by Robert Kanigher with art by Carmine Infantino and Frank Giacoia (the Golden Age Black Canary dream team, baby!), here's the debut of Dr. Pat in "A Cure for Romance"!
