Authentic Police Cases v1 #12, 1951 - Matt Baker's police line-up covers fairly static compared to others in the same series, but no less interesting. The figures create a series of strong verticals, broken only by the diagonal placement of the accuser's arm. Though unrelated, two Baker stories inside. The first covers a crook's elaborate impersonation of an army officer in post-war Italy, while the second features a police manhunt for a contract killer. While both are visually engaging, the "Phantom Fingerman" tale elicits more interest due to more varied layouts and panel shapes (see interior page below). Other artists in this golden age St. John comic include Ralph Lane. This is number 7 of 28 Authentic Police Cases issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints).
