Pictorial Romances #4 - Matt Baker art


Pictorial Romances v1 #4, 1950 - Saving all her money, Ginger spends a week at a posh resort to experience (for a short time) the life of the rich and glamorous. Matt Baker's art is generally straightforward and dependably laid out. There's little visual interest, perhaps with the exception of a dream-like panel of an underwater kiss (see interior page below). This is Baker's first of many stories on this title, and his artwork would progress with each issue. Curiously, this story would be reprinted in the very next issue, Pictorial Romances #5 and later in Diary Secrets #24This is number 1 of 21 Pictorial Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Pictorial Romances issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
