Phantom Lady #17 recreated by Tiina!

Tiina has gorgeously recreated the classic cover of the Phantom Lady #17! Check it out!

The original Phantom Lady #17 cover is most famous for having appeared in psychologist Fredric Wertham's Seduction of the Innocent. Wikipedia says - 'Baker's cover for Phantom Lady #17 (Apr, 1949) was reproduced in Seduction of the Innocent, the 1954 book by Dr. Fredric Wertham denouncing what he saw as the morally corrupting effect of comics on children. The cover, which illustrated Phantom Lady attempting to escape from ropes, was presented by Wertham with a caption that read, "Sexual stimulation by combining 'headlights' with the sadist's dream of tying up a woman."'

The original art for Tiina's recreation is now on sale on E-Bay. 

And here is a close up showing all the beautiful detail from this picture.
