Diary Secrets #24 - Matt Baker cover & reprint

Matt Baker
Diary Secrets v1 #24, 1954 - At the local malt shop, two teenage girls vie for the same boy. Credit goes to Matt Baker for making this scene naturalistic and believable. The body language and facial expressions reinforce the tone. The arc of the jukebox in the background nicely frames the central character. Notice how the commotion draws no reaction from the boy being fought over. Inside the issue, the only Baker art is a reprint from Pictorial Romances #4. This is number 15 of 21 Diary Secrets issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Diary Secrets issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
