Western Bandit Trails / Approved Comics #9 - Matt Baker cover & reprint

Matt Baker
Western Bandit Trails / Approved Comics v1 #9, 1954 - This odd little series reprinted random St. John comics in their entirety (in this case Western Bandit Trails #3). A few had brand new covers, such as this fine example by Matt Baker. In a nearly rectangular path, the reader's eye is led from the heroine to the foreground gunman, up the campfire toward the second outlaw. Baker's layout is complex but clearly defined and well executed. See today's posts, more Baker or Western Bandit Trails issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
