Northwest Mounties #3 - Matt Baker art


Northwest Mounties v1 #3, 1949 -  A pair of determined mounties track down two wanted criminals in the vast wilderness. One of fugitives, curiously, uses a bow and arrow to defend himself and avoid capture. Like many golden age Matt Baker stories, the visuals tell the story in a clean, engaging style. The panels tend to be small and full of dialogue, but a larger opening panel partially makes up for it. This story has also been reprinted in Authentic Police Cases #10. This is number 3 of 4 Northwest Mounties issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Northwest Mounties issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
