Teen-age Romances #34 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
Teen-age Romances v1 #34, 1953 - A teenage girl's wild parties have unintended results in this beautifully illustrated Matt Baker tale. The cover is somewhat suggestive for the 1950s, but tame by today's standards. Certain scenes may have also elicited a bigger response during that era, but romance comics rarely contained hard drug abuse or or overt sexuality. As usual, Baker does a superb job with the characters, conveying their moods and motivations through facial expression and body language. Other artists in this issue include Cal Massey and Mike Sekowsky. This is number 31 of 42 Teen-age Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Teen-age Romances issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.

  1. Thanks for sharing the Baker art. I enjoy visiting your blog and seeing which issue you'll come up with next. It is also refreshing to see the Baker outside of St. John as well. Do you have a large Baker collection?

  2. My Baker collection is not as big as I'd like it to be, and his issues seem extremely scarce. I've got many more Matt Baker posts on the way. Thanks for visiting.
