Exotic Romances #31 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
Exotic Romances v1 #31, 1956 - A working class girl falls for a high society boy, only to suspect she's being used only as a temporary fling. Matt Baker's drawings are competent, despite another artist's dominant inking (Charles Sultan perhaps?). For the most part, his pencils are evident on every page and appear further streamlined (see interior page below). Baker's cover art, previewing a different story, is a tad less impressive with its crowded layout and abundant of text. Other artists in this issue include Sam Citron. Note that this issue is the last of the series. This is number 3 of 3 Exotic Romances with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Exotic Romances issues.
