About the Phantom Lady:
Phantom Lady was created by the Eisner & Iger studio, one of the first to produce comics on demand for publishers. The character's early adventures were drawn by Arthur Peddy. As published by Fox Feature Syndicate in the late 1940s, the busty and scantily-clad Phantom Lady is a notable and controversial example of 'Good Girl Art', a style of comic art depicting voluptuous female characters in provocative situations and pin-up poses that contributed to widespread criticism of the medium's effect on children. The character was ranked 49th in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.

About the Creation: 
I was drawn to the cover of issue #17 because of the full profile of the hero’s figure. I liked the opportunity to recreate the full-body pose with greater attention to tone and softening her intensity at the moment. In the original, she appears to be aggressively working free of her bonds and about to disarm her foe with the blinding blacklight ray. In my version, I made her more relaxed and in control, confident of the outcome that is about to unfold. The work of Frank Frazetta is a definitive cornerstone for femininity in comic art. For good or bad, the general go-to features for feminine beauty are big eyes, a little nose, big mouth. In this creation, I was inspired by a charcoal drawing of his and modeled the light source and her attitude from his work. - Joe Rubinstein
