    John Thornton (as J.W.T.) Flamingo Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-12-52 (Phoenix Features, 1952). The great Matt Baker was a challenging act to follow on Flamingo, but Thornton succeeded in fine glamorous style as Baker's successor. Writer Ruth Roche's exotic adventuress, Flamingo, must deal with a medical emergency in this beautifully drawn episode. Phoenix Features, alias Universal Phoenix, was the syndicate arm of the comic-book studio of S.M. "Jerry" Iger, former partner of Will Eisner and an ancestor of 21st-Century Disney's Robert Iger. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 18.5" x 4.75". Marginal toning and adhesive-tape residue, with one patched-in lettering correction. Very Good condition.
