Heartbreak for a Star

Synopsis

The director had a challenge for April and two of her roommates. Convince Tony Brandon to offer one of them a small part in his new movie, and the director would give that person the co-starring role.

Notes

Robin Snyder said that DC's records attributed the art to Jay Scott Pike. However much of the art, both pencils and inks, is obviously by Bob Oksner, but some does seem to be by Pike. It is unclear how or why this collaboration was done.
