The Texan #15 - Matt Baker art & cover


The Texan v1 #15, 1951 - Despite the title, it's odd that the last four covers primarily feature indians. Matt Baker's cover suggests a plot within an indian tribe, reflecting the theme of his interior story. The drawings are supple and streamlined, especially his opening panel of a horse theft in progress. In the same scene, a rifle, knife and bow are angled to converge, pointing to the thief in the distance. This is number 11 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.
