Fightin' Marines #2 - Matt Baker art


Fightin' Marines v1 #2, 1951 - Canteen Kate begins as a back-up comedy feature, lovingly drawn by Matt Baker. When Kate borrows an air conditioning unit from a major's office, trouble is sure to follow. Her girl-next-door appeal is solely due to the artist's winsome renditions. The male characters are secondary, although drawn equally well. On the cover, Baker drew the small uppermost panel on the left. According to some sources, this is Canteen Kate's first appearance. This cover and story were later reprinted in Fightin' Marines #14. This is number 2 of 11 Fightin' Marines issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints).
