She Got Tired of People Asking, "Who Are You Wearing?"

At least, I assume she's the one who scribbled all that crap on the front of her own desk. Of course, the people I feel sorry for are Donna Elam and Marlene Baron. Because I'm pretty sure they intended for their designs to be worn by Millie, her rival Chili or (less likely) Millie's less glamorous friend and doglike one-woman support team Toni, and not some stuck-up scam artist who appears in only one story. Of course, I have other questions... like, how does the rest of Donna's outfit look? Is it just a blouse? Or does it connect to a skirt, or culottes or maybe some huge flared trousers? Or the bottom half of a pantomime horse costume? Or is the model agency lady connected below the waist to some kind of blocky machinery, like Captain Pike or Korvac the Machine God? (Certainly, I could relate.)

Also of interest: Millie's handbag by Hefty! (What's she got in that thing? A severed head? Or the model agency lady's lower half?)

Interesting how they have the reader's address and everything printed out right there. If that (Or Dial H for Hero) were done today, I can't imagine that happening.

They did that in the letter columns, too. It makes it easier to google old comics fans, though...

She's got her customized bowling ball in the bag.

No, no, what Millie has in that bag is her immortal soul, which she will give to the devil in exchange for the greatest highlights of all time, right in her own hair! As opposed to her thighs, I guess.

Oh, and that lady has another upper body attached to her upper body, which has its own tiny chair and desk underneath that desk.

Jon and Phillip: Golly, you're right! Your identity was about a jillion times safer back then.

MaGnUs: Heh. Probably has a picture of Chili's face on it.

Crowded House: Oh, she's a playing card!
