Authentic Police Cases #20 - Matt Baker non-attributed cover

Matt Baker
Authentic Police Cases v1 #20, 1952 - Matt Baker illustrates a hijacking in progress on the cover's largest panel. While unexceptional, the artist makes effective use of the allotted space. The careful placement of figures firmly establishes foreground, mid-ground and background for maximum depth. The skylight and distant window extend the illusion a little further, while defining the warehouse setting and scale. This is number 15 of 28 Authentic Police Cases issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Baker or Authentic Police Cases issues.
