Authentic Police Cases v1 #6, 1948 - On Matt Baker's first cover of the series, a thug tries to push a woman off a speeding train. Her torn blouse suggests a violent struggle while her shapely legs lead the eye to the text below. Despite the danger, her winsome figure is artfully posed to serve as the scene's focal point. Baker's one point perspective suggests speed as well as distance. This is number 1 of 28 Authentic Police Cases issues with Baker art and/or covers.
