    This anthology makes for an interesting read, especially for those interested in comic history. While the romance genre influences are a bit over-the-top at times (such as how many of her romantic interests turn out to be criminals) it was still more progressive at the time to put a female character at the front of her own series, especially one that was not solely a romantic heroine. Compared to today's quality, this anthology will obviously feel a bit dated, even the more recent Daredevil selection, but this still stands as good representation of a forgotten era of comic history.

    Still gripping & exciting melodrama, decades after its original publication. Jean Thomas and Linda Fite successfully dramatize both the everyday and the extraordinary parts of their heroines lives. I was sorry when I got to the end of it. The Daredevil story at the end was an abrupt tonal shift, with seemingly no connection other than the Night Nurse name. I can't help but feel Night Nurse's appearance in Dr Strange: The Oath would've meshed better with the original work. All in all, I greatly enjoyed the original Night Nurse stories & would've happily read much more about these characters.
