Love Romances #82 - Matt Baker art


Love Romances v1 #82, 1959 - Two non-attributed Matt Baker stories appear in this otherwise unassuming issue. In the first, a young woman has plenty of suitors but no one she can fall in love with. The second tale tells of a high school girl who loses her seemingly "perfect" guy. In both, Baker's large opening panels carry the most impact. Unfortunately, overall his pencils are largely diminished by inker Vince Colletta. Many fine details are lost and even some of the faces are askew. Both stories were later reprinted in My Love v2 #12. Other artists in this issue include John Forte and Jay Pike. See today's posts, more Baker or Love Romances issues.
