    Description

    Matt Baker - Rangers Comics #37 Complete 6-page "Glory Forbes" Story Original Art "Mrs. Plush Bilt's Ball" (Fiction House, 1947). Matt Baker, famed giant of "good girl" art, spotlights glamorous girl-adventurer Glory Forbes in a scintillating six-page romp. Comics historian Ron Goulart summed up Baker's importance to the comic book field as follows: "What he drew best was pretty women. He was, in fact, one of the leading practitioners of what's come to be known as 'good girl art.' In the years he spent in comics he drew every sort of attractive female from Phantom Lady to Lorna Doone. Much admired and much imitated, he was sort of the Vargas of comic books." In this slam-bang thriller, Glory busts up a jewel-snatching plot, built around a little person posing as a ventriloquist's doll. Along the way, the leggy crimefighter strikes a pulchritudinous pose in each sultry scene. The image area of each page measures 12" x 18". Some of the pages have blue-pencil color notes (as was common with Iger Studio pages); otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition. Each page of this yarn has been professionally framed, and this superb story is sure to be a Matt Baker fan's delight!
