Lassie #22 - Matt Baker art


Lassie v1 #22, 1955 - Another wonderful painted cover opens this issue, typical of many Dell titles at the time. Matt Baker once again proves he's capable of drawing this television adventure comics with relative ease. His pair of stories center around Lassie's interaction with other animals, which are generally less compelling than his rendition of people. "Lassie and the Isle of Adventure" is slightly weaker of the two from an aesthetic standpoint. Pages 9-10 look suspiciously inconsistent, as if drawn by someone else. A third story within the same issue is drawn by another artist, so it's conceivable that he filled in those particular pages for reasons unknown. That aside, Baker's last issue still surpasses the art throughout the majority of the series. This is number 3 of 3 Lassie issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Lassie issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
