Teen-age Romances #9 - Matt Baker art & cover, Joe Kubert art

Matt Baker
Teen-age Romances v1 #9, 1950 - Matt Baker contributes two tales in this issue: a materialistic girl convinces men to buy her nice things and a cheerleader plays the field with little thought to the consequences. Both are sumptuously drawn with his typical smooth, flowing lines. Baker also does a large illustration of similar quality for the issue's sole text story. A bit less impressive is Joe Kubert's work on "Magnificent Deception",  a tale of a rising starlet torn between two different men. His inking only brings marginal improvement to the pencils. All four stories (which were later reprinted in Diary Secrets #17) are packaged within an attractive Matt Baker cover. Read the brown-haired woman's inadvertently sexual comment to get a chuckle. This is number 9 of 42 Teen-age Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more BakerKubert or Teen-age Romances issues.
