What is "Good Girl Art"?
Usually shortened to GGA, this popular type of vintage cover art depicts an attractive sexy woman often regardless of the subject matter. GGA is not about a 'good girl' but rather means 'girl art' that is good.

Collectors use the term GGA to describe this type of lush provocative art frequently featured in comic books, crime fiction mags and pulp fiction of the 1940s and 50s.
