Robin Hood Tales #3 - Matt Baker art, mis-attributed Baker cover

Robin Hood Tales v1 #3, 1956 - Supposedly pencilled by Matt Baker, this cover seems more likely by interior artist Chuck Cuidera. The figures overall are stiffly rendered, especially the swordsman to the left in the background. The back-up tale, featuring King Richard during the Crusades, can be more clearly attributed to Baker. Characters are posed more gracefully and the faces are much more indicative of the artist's style. This is number 2 of 5 Robin Hood Tales issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or Robin Hood Tales issues. See also this blog's Baker checklist.
