Nightmare v2 #13 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
Nightmare v2 #13, 1954 - This cover sports a rather bizarre scene of a skin diver's encounter with underwater female creatures. Matt Baker's layout incorporates multiple figures within a limited amount of space. In the foreground, a woman lies seductively on her back, vaguely reminiscent of the sirens of Greek mythology. Baker's fantastical illustration also benefits from the cover's rich, aquatic color palette. This is number 1 of 1 Nightmare issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Nightmare issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.

  1. Wonderful cover. The cramped, claustrophobic feel enhances the feeling that the diver is trapped. Good (blue sea-creature) girl art for an adventure title.
