One Panel #595: Horses in Love

From Shining Knight: "Mystery of the Clowning Criminals" by Mort Weisinger and Creig Flessel, Leading Comics #2 (March 1942)

I love a good background gag, if only because it shows the artist isn't sleepwalking through his assignment. Winged Victory looking longingly at a picture of a horse on the wall has nothing to do with the plot, it's just a little bit of business to fill a frame that could have been tighter on the action instead. So I love it.

There's a reason Creig Flessel shows up fairly frequently in this feature.
