Weird Adventures #1 - Matt Baker art


Weird Adventures v1 #1, 1951 - A beautiful but troubled young woman uses her charms to commit heinous crimes. Like many crime comics of the era, Matt Baker combines sex appeal and violence to titillate the reader. To this point, the she-killer's legs are frequently exposed throughout the pages. Suggestive themes aside, Baker displays an uncanny knack for facial expressions and the character's underlying emotions. This is number 1 of 1 Weird Adventures issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Weird Adventures issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.

Wow, that's amazing work by Baker! It seems slightly more realistic than his usual stuff, just perfect for this gritty crime drama.
