Phantom Lady #13 is the first issue of the series published by Fox Feature Syndicate, and therefore is also the first issue to be illustrated by Matt Baker. Baker has been lauded posthumously for his exquisite and lush work on this title, and his contributions to Good Girl Art in general, and this issue was where his union with his most-popular subject began. In "The Beauty and the Brain" Phantom Lady fans get to double their pleasure thanks to Phantom Lady having a duplicate of herself to deal with, its almost as if Baker knew how popular this character could be and decided to double down on this new subject matter. Taking over the numbering from Wotalife Comics, this issue got Fox's reboot of Phantom Lady off to a running start.



Graded at an impressive 9.0, this copy, hailing from the Phantom Lady collection is one of three to top the census. Beautifully centered, perfectly registered, and presenting beaming colors, particularly the shimmering yellows, this comic is a surefire target come auction time.
