Western Bandit Trails #2 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
Western Bandit Trails v1 #2, 1949 - Matt Baker captures a moment of confusion and disarray as two gunmen burst into a saloon. The scene's intensity and spontaneity leaves us unsure of the final outcome. Note how the woman's garishly feminine attire contrasts against the jagged broken bottle she wields. Is she fending off an attacker or aiding a partner? Despite the scene's ambiguity, Baker succeeds in drawing the readers' attention. This is number 2 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.
