THIS BOOK IS COMPLETELY SOLD OUT AND UNAVAILABLE AT ANY PRICE!!The absolute classic character that epitomizes the “good girl art” style of the 1940’s was Fox Features Phantom Lady, and this volume is entirely devoted to the sultry, raven-haired crimefighter, as rendered by her signature artist, the great Matt Baker. Almost 80 pages of the best pinup style glamour art ever to appear in comics, as the leggy, busty and scantily-clad ‘Lady is seen in five vintage stories, reproduced as clearly as the day they were drawn: “The Beauty And The Brain”, from Phantom Lady #13, (actually the first issue ) “Scoundrels and Scandal” from PL #14, “Satan’s Cargo”, from All Top Comics #8 ,( first issue ) November of 1947; “Army Of The Walking Dead”, from Phantom Lady #15, and “Horrors Of The Red Rain”, also from PL #15.
