Fightin' Marines / Approved Comics #11 - Matt Baker cover & reprint

Matt Baker
Fightin' Marines / Approved Comics v1 #11, 1954 - On this especially violent Matt Baker, an American GI torches a nest of enemy soldiers. His crazed expression is more than a little disturbing. And yet, the scene is more tasteful than the typical horror comic from that era (no melting faces, etc.). That aside, Baker's rendering is bold and eye-catching. Also included is a Canteen Kate reprint from Fightin' Marines #3. See today's posts, more Baker or Fightin' Marines issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
