Authentic Police Cases v1 #12, 1951 - Matt Baker's police line-up covers fairly static compared to others in the same series, but no less interesting. The figures create a series of strong verticals, broken only by the diagonal placement of the accuser's arm. Though unrelated, two Baker stories inside. The first covers a crook's elaborate impersonation of an army officer in post-war Italy, while the second features a police manhunt for a contract killer. While both are visually engaging, the "Phantom Fingerman" tale elicits more interest due to more varied layouts and panel shapes (see interior page below). This is number 7 of 28 Authentic Police Cases issues with Baker art and/or covers.
