Anchor Andrews #1 - Matt Baker art


Anchor Andrews v1 #1, 1953 - This one-shot issue features a bumbling sailor and his misadventures, a comedic character not uncommon during the golden age. The back-up Canteen Kate tale is similar in tone, but with more sophistication and savvy. Impeccably drawn by Matt Baker, her stories first appeared in the war title Fightin' Marines before graduating to her own self-titled (and short lived) series. Consistent with those previous works, this effort by Baker balances realism and humor without sacrificing comedic timing. Other artists in this St. John golden age humor comic include Carl Hubbell. Cover by Hubbell. This is number 1 of 1 Anchor Andrews issues with Baker art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Baker issues on ebay.
