Robin Hood Tales #1 - mis-attributed Matt Baker cover


Robin Hood Tales v1 #1, 1956 - Purportedly by Matt Baker, the cover is adequately and thoughtfully composed. The large tree on the right helps frame the picture, leading the eye from the masthead to the figures below. There's just enough space to accommodate a brief description on the left and an oncoming knight on the right. Chuck Cuidera is credited with the inks in certain comic guides. Unfortunately, the artwork is inconsistent with Baker's style in the 1950s, leading me to conclude this is a mis-attribution. Fortunately, the artist would contribute short stories in Robin Hood Tales #2-6. See today's posts or more Baker or Robin Hood Tales issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
