The Texan #9 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
The Texan v1 #9, 1950 - One of Matt Baker's busier western covers, a cowboy lands a devastating punch on his opponent. Below the masthead, figures and other visual elements fills the entire space. Still, the layout maintains balance and clarity. A small decorative inset on the lower right alludes to another story, but Baker's sizing and placement somewhat infringes on the larger scene. This is number 6 of 11 Texan issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Baker or Texan issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
