    Secrets Behind The Comics #nn (Stan Lee, 1947) CGC FN/VF 7.0 White pages.

Smilin' Stan's text is primarily illustrated by Ken Bald. The book has tons of great features including a profile on Syd Shores (with four pages of his Blonde Phantom reproduced), and art by Mike Sekowsky, Basil Wolverton, and Al Jaffee.
