The Texan #7 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
The Texan v1 #7, 1950 - Matt Baker's cover depicts an indian attack on a covered wagon. The layout lacks a true focal point and most combatants are roughly the same size. Leading the issue is a tale of Spotted Bear, an indian brave. The opening splash presents a disturbing image of a massacre's aftermath. Some pages are wordy and crowd the western settings, but overall Baker meets expectations. This is number 4 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.
