Good Girl Art

Hermes press / · english

Noted comics historian Ron Goulart has done it again! Not content with producing the definitive histories of great adventure comic strips, the great pulp magazine writers, comic books, and most recently his best selling encyclopedia of the comics, now Goulart has produced the final word on good girls in the comic books with Good Girl Art. The phrase "Good Girl Art," first coined in the mail order catalogs of the American Comic Book Company, didn’t come into wide use among fans, collectors and dealers until a few decades ago. However, the phenomenon existed almost from the beginning of the comic book business in the 1930s. The term refers not to magazines that contain drawings of virtuous girls but rather to those featuring good drawings of attractive women. These pretty girls are most often scantily, sparsely or provocatively clad.
