Wartime Romances #6 - Matt Baker art & cover


Wartime Romances v1 #6, 1952 - Despite the numerous small panels and abundant dialogue, Matt Baker illustrates his three stories with masterful ease. Each typically opens with a large title panel, setting the tone for the remaining pages. Among his skillfully drawn efforts, "Engagement for Profit", is just a tad more exquisite. The compositions within the panels are slightly more varied and detailed (see interior page above). By contrast, Baker's cover is merely sufficient. This is number 6 of 18 Wartime Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Wartime Romances issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
