Lovers #81 - Matt Baker art

Lovers v1 #81, 1956 - After a near-miss accident, a wealthy coed finds herself rescued by a nice, working class guy. Matt Baker's artwork is thoughtful and sensitively applied. Dramatic lighting is used sparingly, but effectively in key scenes throughout the story. The late night incident looks especially serious in darkness and shadow (see interior page below). Other small details (such as a friend's abrupt departure on page 5) contribute to this gem of a romance tale. Other artists in this issue include Jay Scott Pike, Al Hartley, Mike Sekowsky and Vince Colletta. See today's posts, more Baker or Lovers issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
