Robin Hood Tales #2 - Matt Baker art, mis-attributed Baker cover


Robin Hood Tales v1 #2, 1956 - I have to disagree with certain comic book price guides that attribute the cover to Matt Baker. The path of Robin Hood's arrow is misplaced, almost suggesting he drew it behind his back. Chuck Cuidera, who illustrated the main story inside, more likely did the cover as well. Baker begins drawing the secondary feature, centered around King Richard the Lion-Hearted and the Crusades. The characters' faces are almost indistinguishable from one another, but in general the artwork capably meets expectations. This is number 1 of 5 Robin Hood Tales issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Robin Hood Tales issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
