    The “doorman” looks like a railroad crew member, no? Could Axelrod be in on the train caper?

    Good catch! I recently read Derby Dugan’s Depression Funnies after learning about it here. Very enjoyable. Even so, I wouldn’t have recalled Abe Ongo.

    @AnyFace All valid points. :) Your Avatar is great, too.

    “Survivors” definitely implies to me that there were some who didn’t survive. Otherwise, “witnesses” would’ve been sufficient.

    Desmond’s initials suggest he might be rather obsessive. And compulsive.

    By an accident of history, my introduction to procedural plotting was the 1966 Batman TV series. (The Blu-Rays are gorgeous, BTW.) I tend to think of criminal informants like Pouch as their stories’ equivalents of that show’s Batcomputer: Implausible, just barely possible shortcuts that stand in for realistic-but-dull shoe-leather investigation.

    This may have been observed before, but it just occurred to me that Blaze Rise’s physique is a near-perfect blend of Brenda Starr and Jimmy Olsen. She’s coming off as one of this arc’s more sympathetic crooks — perhaps more victim of circumstance than career criminal. I wonder if she’ll reform and become a newshound.

    Since the cards are all hearts — black hearts — maybe it’s a “13 Gang.”

    The playing-card motif in the hideout only features one of the four standard suits. A suit whose standard color is red, but which is rendered here in a nonstandard color. I think that’s all the significance there needs to be to the decor.

    My guess is the Nitrates will hightail in the supercar, take the cash Stiletta laid out for it, and alert Tracy and co. of her wherabouts and kidnapping plans. And that when Mrs. F. recovers, Silver and Sprocket will have (temporarily) taken Tracy’s place at the top of her revenge list.
