Wild Boy of the Congo v1 #14, 1955 - An all too common theme for jungle covers, the title character saves a damsel in distress from a stampeding herd. Although the scene is drawn from a straightforward bird's eye view, Matt Baker opts for minimal foreshortening and a more complete rendition of the main figures. The drawing nicely contrasts the graceful rescue against the chaotic background below. This is number 4 of 5 Wild Boy of the Congo issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Wild Boy of the Congo issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
