Authentic Police Cases #32 - Matt Baker cover

Matt Baker
Authentic Police Cases v1 #32, 1954 - Gangsters burst in on a resort in the Catskills, brandishing guns and taking hostages. Matt Baker manages to squeeze in many figures within a relatively small space. The girl in the foreground is an obvious focal point, but her foreshortened arm appears mis-proportioned. The gunman's wafting tie and jacket also suggest the suddenness of the event. This is number 23 of 28 Authentic Police Cases issues with Baker art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts, more Baker or Authentic Police Cases issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.

  1. You've a sharp eye for detail, I didn't notice the arm till I read your copy.
