SIZE: 7 1/4" tall x 22" wide
in B minus condition *** This was framed, but not under glass so it has some exposure discoloration. If you take note of the white color, paper labels of the copyright KING FEATURES…, and the background framed matting, the exposure isn't that bad. I think the original poster board was a cream color. It may just have turned from age. * The Frame is NOT INCLUDED *** some soiling spots in upper right area & on right side *** the 1st panel, lower left corner, the applied dots plastic is torn & bent *** corners have bend creases *** pinholes in edges, one inside 1st frame, top left corner *** This was simply scotch taped to the matting. The back of has tape residue that I put new tape over *** I don't know if this was published or in what newspapers. It's up to you the collector to research. I can't imagine that it wasn't. *** Titled on back " Ladies before Gentlemen " (10/31 - 11/5 in pencil in upper right edge)
Lee Falk the creator of Phantom, during his WW II service left The Phantom to his assistant Wilson McCoy. Upon returning worked on & off until 1949, when Wilson succeeded him until his death in 1961.
Just my opinion; the cool Bells & Whistles: Halloween Day, 1949 with the New Year 1950 two months away. * Tydore, full face with all these creepy hands & weapons surrounding him. * 3 full figure Phantom. The best scaling down a building like Spiderman. The spider looking hand next to that frame * The clock at 11:00 PM, due back at 12:00 (an hour "FOR DIANA") and the building top looks like the Los Angeles City Hall building. *** WAY very very COOL !
