The Texan v1 #6, 1949 - This fine Matt Baker cover is unusually crowded, especially with the inset on the lower left. Two cowboys fight it out while an errant bullet nearly misses an armed woman behind them. Actually seeing the bullet's path is a technique often used during the golden age, helping lead the reader's eye from foreground to background. This is number 3 of 11 Texan issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Texan issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
