Amazing Ghost Stories v1 #14, 1954 - Swamp creatures converge upon a couple's small boat on this strange horror cover. The man tries to fend them off with a harpoon while the woman clings to him for protection, her clothing torn suggestively. Matt Baker employs a triangular layout to create this well balanced composition. The adeptly drawn foliage on the sides and toward the top of the cover not only establish the setting but adds decoration as well. A short story by Everett Raymond Kinstler also graces this issue. This is number 1 of 3 Amazing Ghost Stories issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Amazing Ghost Stories issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
