The Texan #13 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
The Texan v1 #13, 1951 - Matt Baker's cover puts emphasis on the foreground indians, but makes scant room for the wagon train in the distance. Baker would also illustrate four interior stories. The best among them is "Abeline, City of Sin", starting with its superb opening splash. The frontier settings and ornately dressed citizens are typical of his fine draftsmanship. This is number 9 of 11 Texan issues with Baker art and/or covers.
