    Description

    Phantom Lady #17 (Fox, 1948) CGC VF+ 8.5 Pink pages. This classic Matt Baker bondage cover is on everybody's want list. Cited in Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent, this book is notorious as the perfect example of a "headlight" cover. One of Wertham's most often-cited comments was in reference to the cover of this book, which he described as "a sadist's dream." An impressive comic, despite some spine wear, this copy is worthy of a place in the finest collection. Victor Fox liked to print on the cheapest paper possible, including colored paper such as the pink stock used in this copy. There is currently only one copy of this issue that has been graded higher by CGC. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $3,600; VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,400.
