Genre:
war; humor
Characters:
Wendy Wings; Major Paine; Flip
Synopsis:
Wendy joins the WAF to take over a man's job, but once the Air Corps spotted her in uniform they wanted to take over the girl for whom no one could find a replacement.

Indexer Notes

DeCarlo is credited to both pen and ink on Wendy the WAF by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but it also credits Lepick as his personal inker, and the inking is exactly like the signed "DeCarlo/Lepick" on Yardbirds in #9. Seems like a riddle, but the artwork does not have any differences, so the solution must be both artists credited here.
