Lassie #20 - Matt Baker art


Lassie v1 #20, 1955 - Matt Baker's short run on this television comic is a surprise to many. The same artist who produced many of the 1940s "good girl" covers takes a turn on a more wholesome comic book series. Unlike his streamlined and graphic approach in the 1940s to early 1950s, this issue favors more finely drawn lines and varied perspectives. There is a strong sense of the romantic, especially in this rendition of the characters. All three stories in this issue are sensitively detailed and exquisitely paced even within the publisher's six panel grid. This is number 1 of 3 Lassie issues with Baker art and/or covers.
