Crime Reporter #2 - Matt Baker cover

Crime Reporter v1 #2 - Matt Baker golden age crime comic book cover art
Matt Baker
Crime Reporter v1 #2, 1948 - With a gunman in pursuit, a young actress flees from her dressing room. Matt Baker leans the figures left and right, creating diagonal lines of action. The star on the door identifies her profession (curiously placed on the inside), while the overturned chair in the background suggests chaos. No stranger to cheesecake poses, Baker nonetheless does it more artfully than most. This is number 1 of 2 Crime Reporter issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Crime Reporter issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
