Amazing Ghost Stories v1 #15, 1954 - A ghost commands zombie-like slaves while a woman seeks to escape on horseback. This Matt Baker cover provides only sparest of information about the story, but is still compelling even in its ambiguity. The stone arch leads the eye to the phantom, whose arm in turn points toward the young woman. The foreground leaves and palm trees in the the background suggest a tropical locale in the midst of a storm. Though not his strongest layout, Baker's superb draftsmanship is still very much present. This is number 2 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.
