Western Outlaws v2 #13 - Matt Baker art

Western Outlaws v2 #13, 1955 - After learning their father died during a gunfight, two brothers take completely different paths in life. One becomes the town marshal and the other turns into a troublemaker. As tough as these western tales are, Matt Baker also infuses grace and dignity in his figure drawings. His first page is almost a splash, using a borderless panel to suggest an expansive setting (see interior page below). The remaining pages are less provocative and more straightforward in approach. Other artists in this issue include Jay Scott Pike, Ross Andru, Mike Esposito, John Romita and Joe Maneely. This is number 1 of 1 Western Outlaws issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Western Outlaws issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
