  2. Erin, Thank You! This really helped me discover cover artwork created by Clifford Benton. Thank You for placing his name here. I am part of the Benton Family and I’m sharing this material with other family members. Clifford apparently also did PinUp illustrations. Now that I have his signature BEN-TON to look for and his stylizations and art vocabulary I’m going on a further search! Clifford, I’m told, also used the same ‘Sizzlin’!
