Pictorial Romances #12 - Matt Baker art, cover & reprint

Matt Baker
Pictorial Romances v1 #12, 1952 - Matt Baker's two tales chronicle the lives of two separate conniving women. In "Love Urchin", an airline attendant steals other girls' dates while manning the phones. The main character in "Party Wife" enjoys her role as a glamorous hostess a little too much. The artwork in both cases is elegant and well laid out, despite the heavy amount of text and dialogue. Fine details abound in character settings and surroundings (see interior page below). A Baker reprint from from Teen-Age Diary Secrets #8 rounds out the book. Other artists in this issue include Ray Osrin. This is number 9 of 21 Pictorial Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Pictorial Romances issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
