Gunsmoke Western #32 - Matt Baker art


Gunsmoke Western v1 #32, 1955 - An old gunfighter rides into town, intending to right the wrongs of his past misdeeds. This tale of redemption is ably illustrated by Matt Baker. Sensitive cross-hatching and linework add a richness rarely seen in western comics. Facial close-ups have depth and emotive power. Baker's layouts also have a more cinematic feel, a natural evolution of his style. This story was later reprinted in Western Gunfighters v2 #3. Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller, Mort Drucker and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Gunsmoke Western issues with Baker art and/or covers.
