Pictorial Romances v1 #24, 1954 - Hiring a male escort brings unintended consequences for a young working woman. Matt Baker's cover depicts a gigolo-turned-freeloader, complete with smoldering cigarette and scattered newspapers. Baker's feature story is even better, sharply rendered with fine details. His figure drawing is graceful and the characters' faces emotive. Other artists in this issue include Ric Estrada, among others. This is number 21 of 21 Pictorial Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Pictorial Romances issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
