Teen-age Romances #2 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
Teen-age Romances v1 #2, 1949 - A student nurse gets involved with a handsome young doctor, a local girl falls for the class romeo and a teenager moves out of the house, nearer to her boyfriend's army base. This trio of Matt Baker tales is adequately drawn. The settings and scenarios are firmly established in the artist's roomy opening panels. Of the three, the malt shop scene in "I Took the Wrong Road to Romance" has the most complex and interesting layout. This story was later reprinted in Teen-Age Romances #12. "I Dared to Kiss and Tell" and "How Could I Fight Temptation?" both appeared later in Diary Secrets #19. Baker's cover seems to lack his usual sophistication. This is number 2 of 42 Teen-age Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Teen-age Romances issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
