Teen-age Romances #7 - Matt Baker art


Teen-age Romances v1 #7, 1949 - A young girl leaves the confines of her small town, leaving her boyfriend in the process. While not atypical of the romance stories at the time, Matt Baker's sumptuous drawings are better than most during this period. There is a good bit of dialogue and text on many of the panels (also standard for romance comics), but this story seems busier than usual. Still, Baker manages to fill the remaining spaces with skill and sensitivity. This story was later reprinted in Diary Secrets #15. This is number 7 of 42 Teen-age Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Teen-age Romances issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
