Western Bandit Trails #1 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
Western Bandit Trails v1 #1, 1949 - A pioneer couple finds themselves under attack by indians, although the entire scene still seems oddly calm. Rather than ducking under cover, Matt Baker curiously places them out in the open. That aside, the artist demonstrates his smooth brushwork and fine figure drawing skills. Even the dead branch on the foreground increases depth and adds visual interest. This is number 1 of 3 Western Bandit Trails issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Western Bandit Trails issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
