Poison Ivy Comes a-Creepin' Around!

I just finished a fun book by Linda Barnes, the 1990 Coyote, featuring her PI character Carlotta Carlyle.

The version I read is the original 1990 publication, with this cover:

As true-blue Super Blog readers, you too see something familiar in the cover, yes?

Keep your own eyes peeled, campers.  The Silver Age is all around us!

See you next Monday.
