Quick-Trigger Western #18 - Matt Baker art

Quick-Trigger Western v1 #18, 1957 - The opening panel's saloon shoot-out is an exciting start to this Matt Baker tale. Despite some odd coloring, the artwork is dependable and well executed. On page 2 panel 7, the concerned look on the woman's face is a fine example of how Baker uses close-ups to convey character moods. His drawings are a grittier than usual, but still retain their subtlety. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow, Joe Sinnott, Ted Galindo, Ross Andru and Joe Maneely (cover). This is number 3 of 3 Quick-Trigger Western issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Quick-Trigger Western issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
