Wild Boy of the Congo #15 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
Wild Boy of the Congo v1 #15, 1955 - Jungle heroes often seemed to fight crocodiles, lions and tigers with regularity during the golden age, and this cover is no exception. Matt Baker does another simple but effective layout, his last on the series. The crocodile's mouth seems slightly distorted but not overly distracting. With the exception of the water's concentric circles, there is a feeling of sparseness around the masthead. Baker's drawing is enhanced by the contrasting color palette of reds and greens, making the cover that much more vivid. This is number 5 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.
