    She looks like she’s has deadly accuracy.

    In regards to yesterdays comment about Lizz looking like Fritz Ann. I have it on good authority that Lizz’s hair is growing out. It should be noticeably longer in the near future.

    That is a long time to hold a grudge.

    Mistress of Knives! So I had surmised. Love that Berlin poster!

    The circus chose their “poster girl” well. She’s both cute, and deadly!

    Who would have thought Flattop had love for anyone but himself? Maybe he considered her just another deadly little accessory for his crimes.

    I was surprised to see that Lizz remained a blonde well into the 60’s (of course, aside from her undercover assignment in Collins’ Art Dekko storyline). Had always thought that was strictly her initial 50’s look. Lizz as brunette timed w/ Moon Maid’s prominent role in the strip circa early-mid 60’s. I guess to avoid confusion ’tween the (2) female characters?

    Gripe time & narrative motif. “Guest star” shows up & explains everything. No police work required. Just had this w/ LittleFace.

    She has good reason to hold a grudge. Tracy was involved/responsible for the death of Flattop as well as her two children. It seems that Stiletta and Flattop’s hands are African-American.

    LIZZ’S HAIR COLOR . . .
    Yes, it was blonde from her first appearance in early 1955, at that time - a photograper working for Nothing Yonson.
    The hair color changing to black, wouldn’t occur until 9 years later (1964).
    Some 8 months or so, after white haired Moon Maid had become a more regular character.
    And like you, I suspect it was to help diffrentiate the two. Plus, Gould always liked to contrast his panels with black and white.

    Recall that it was LIZZ who first tangled with, and finally put a bullet through the head by Flattop Jr.
    Angeltop - the victim of her own bomb**!*
    *
    Patton** may have done more apparent damage to the original (Dad), shooting him through the neck in an earlier sequence
    One might have thought her FOCUS might more readily been aimed at those responsible for the death of her children (?)
    Tracy seems to be the focal point for “wider” law enforcement.

    On Chicago Tribune, only Stiletta has tanned hands. One more for GoComics’ colorist. Maybe they are partially color blind, like me.

    Who is the cop behind Patton in the first panel? Particularly well-drawn face.

    He is Dennis O’Copper, husband of Frizzletop.

    So, when they first met, she only looked like Flattop a little bit, perhaps the overall shape of her face. But when they split up, she changed her hair style to look specifically like the man she was leaving. There is probably some psychological reason for that.
