Reading Room PHANTOM LADY "Stinging Whip"

At long last, from the issue Dr Wertham vilified in Seduction of the Innocent...
...that fine filly, Phantom Lady, spends a day at the races in this tale from Phantom Lady #17!
Though the GCD lists Jack Kamen as the artist, I suspect he did pencils only, as there's a lot of Matt Baker influence in this art, especially the rendering.
Here's Adam Hughes' take on the cover for this issue, Phantom Lady #17
from the HTF trade paperback Phantom Lady: Crime Never Pays!

featuring goodies emblazoned with cover art that Fredric Wertham railed against in Seduction of the Innocent.
