Sky Girl in "Snakes on a Plane"

For those of you enjoying the recent good girl art and snake tales over at THOIA, let us now uncoil some similar fun here at AEET by whippin' out another dose of pretty legs and pythons! Yes sir, these sexy Sky Girl back-up stories found in 1940's Jumbo Comics are a real hoot, hilariously scripted by Bill Gibson, and I suppose if you've never read one before then this is a wonderful introduction to the wacky WW2 era world of gorgeous Ginger McGuire, aka SKY GIRL! You can get her abbreviated bio / back story HERE, --and though her hair color might've changed a few times throughout her lengthy, air headed, aviation adventure run, one thing remained consistant: those lovely legs of hers wrapped in pin stripe stockings and very short shirts, as only the late, great illustrative master, Matt Baker could draw 'em!

What a bizarre concept -- so a women who could fly a plane (I guess, she never did it in this comic!) somehow doesn't have a plane but somehow ends up in one every issue???

There's got to be an easier way to make a 6 page story full of good girl art!

I don't believe the ending, that guy *has* to be rich to pull all this off!

Obviously the girl art is the draw here, but I have to say the artist certainly action and movement.

Always nice to see Matt Baker doing his thing. His facility at drawing woman notwithstanding, that snake looks a little like a greyhound. It gives me the freaks.
