She Kamen through the bedroom window…
Jack Kamen drew this outstanding entry in the Ghost Gallery* series for Jumbo Comics #93, November 1946.
Kamen had quite a way with pretty girls. Here’s a more current drawing by Kamen, from a scan sent recently by fan and collector Bill Leach to my friend Eddie Hunter.
Also, there's this original art by Harry Harrison from a similar story called “Bed of Murder” in EC Comics’ War Against Crime #11, published in 1950. Was this some sort of motif of the time in crime novels or movies, showing canopies of beds crushing and killing unwary sleepers?
*The very first Ghost Gallery was in Pappy’s #114.
