Teen-age Romances #3 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
Teen-age Romances v1 #3, 1949 - In a trio of Matt Baker stories, one girl tries to derail her mother's engagement, another tries to undercut a rival and a third uses her feminine wiles to toy with different men. Baker's drawings shine throughout, even with the all ponderous dialogue balloons. Of the three, "I Was Afraid to Fall in Love" is drawn a tad better than the others. Interestingly, the story also contains a spanking scene, strangely inappropriate by today's standards (see interior page below). All three feature tales were reprinted in Diary Secrets #11. This is number 3 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.
