Alex Blum w/Matt Baker pencils and inks; Lucky Wings page 5; 1946; image size 13" x 19.5"It was regular practice at the Iger studios to have Matt Baker come in and draw the faces of female characters in many of their stories, this what we believe to be the case here. The drawings of Lucky Wings are clearly by a different artist than the rest of the figures, and the back of the page is noted Alex Blum/Baker. Beautiful twice-up page featuring one of the rare female aviators of comics' Golden Age. Pen and ink. Art is in very good condition, light edge chipping, especially in the corners, and mild age wear and toning.
Alex Blum worked for Eisner & Iger in the early days of the Golden Age, he eventually ended as a house artist for Classics Illustrated, where he illustrated over 25 issues of the literary adaptation comic.
