Fightin' Marines #8 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker 
Fightin' Marines v1 #8, 1952 - Al breaks the colonel's priceless vase, prompting Canteen Kate to come up with one of her wacky solutions. Matt Baker nears the end of his run on this title. His cover layout is more static than usual, but his interior pages mostly meet expectations. His opening panel, showing a reclining Kate against the scenic backdrop, is the highlight of the story. This is number 8 of 11 Fightin' Marines issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts, more Baker, Canteen Kate or Fightin' Marines issues.
