Wartime Romances #4 st. john 1950s golden age romance comic book cover by Matt Baker
Matt Baker
Wartime Romances v1 #4, 1952 - Matt Baker's multi-paneled cover is heavy in text and dialogue, but still manages clarity and hierarchy within the busy layout. The artist is also responsible for illustrating all five stories inside. Each features a young woman's search for love and commitment during wartime. Both drawings and page layouts are exceptionally crafted throughout the issue. Abundant in attractive faces and figures, the artist takes great care in the background details. Two tales, "I Was the Roving Kind" and "I Plunged into Trouble", especially benefit from their exotic locales. This golden age romance comic was published by St. John. This is number 4 of 18 Wartime Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Baker or >Wartime Romances issues on ebay.
