The Texan #11 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
The Texan v1 #11, 1950 - This terrific Matt Baker cover highlights some of the characters featured inside. Oddly, the title character of The Texan is relegated to secondary status on the left. The lead story opens with an especially fine splash page, starring the indian brave Hawk Knife. All three stories feature heroic men and attractive women set against frontier landscapes. Baker's supple drawing style adds a quaint romanticism to these western genre tales. This is number 7 of 11 Texan issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Texan issues.
