Fightin' Marines #4 - Matt Baker art

Fightin' Marines v1 #4, 1952 - Remedying her army buddy's ill-fitting uniform, Canteen Kate swipes some fabric from the supply depot. The subsequent chaos that results is drawn with skillful humor, thanks to Matt Baker. His short but engaging tale adds comic relief to an issue otherwise filled with gritty war stories. Note that one of Baker's panels is re-purposed for the cover (upper left). This is number 4 of 11 Fightin' Marines issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Baker, Canteen Kate or Fightin' Marines issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
