Fightin' Marines v1 #3, 1951 - Matt Baker not only draws the entrenched marines on this cover, but the small upper panel as well. Inside, his only contribution is a lighter-sided Canteen Kate story. Wanting to be cast in an upcoming stage performance, Kate's mischief draws the ire of several generals. On the opening panel, the artist poses her similarly to the show's star, suggesting her aspirations. Though best known for his romance work, Baker handles the humor genre quite comfortably. This story was later reprinted in Fightin' Marines #16 and Approved Comics #11. This is number 3 of 11 Fightin' Marines issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints). This issue is also included in this Baker gallery. Find >this issue or more >Baker or >Fightin' Marines issues on ebay.
