The Texan #4 - Matt Baker art & cover

The Texan v1 #4, 1949 - On this action-filled cover, a female gunslinger attempts to stop a robbery in progress. The perspective is a tad questionable, but Matt Baker's artistry makes up for it. His interior story, featuring Buckskin Belle, is competently done although not extraordinary. Perhaps he was still adjusting to the emerging western genre in comics. This story was later reprinted in The Hawk #9. This is number 1 of 11 Texan issues with Baker art and/or covers. This issue is also included in this Baker gallery.
