Teen-age Diary Secrets #nn (#5) - Matt Baker art

Teen-age Diary Secrets v1 #no number (#5), 1949 - In "I Liked Older Men", a teenager drives a wedge between a husband and wife in order to have him for herself. This tale of deceit and manipulation is ably drawn by Matt Baker. His artwork accommodates a large amount of dialogue, while staying fairly conservative. This is among his earliest romance tales, before Baker begins to improve and influence the genre. This story was later reprinted (and retitled "Crazy for Love") in Pictorial Romances #11. Other artists in this issue include Lily Renee. This is number 2 of 6 Teen-Age Diary Secrets issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Teen-Age Diary Secrets issues.
