Wild Boy of the Congo #12 - Matt Baker cover

Wild Boy of the Congo v1 #12, 1955 - Perhaps the weakest of his covers on the series, Matt Baker nonetheless does a capable job. The artist employs several diagonal lines in the composition but leaves depth to a minimum. Wild Boy of the Congo swings into the scene's foreground, defending himself against a gunman. The antagonist's face is unkempt and unshaven, usually an indication of the story's villain. This is number 2 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.
