True Love Pictorial #9 - Matt Baker cover, non-attributed Baker art

Matt Baker golden age 1950s romance comic book cover - True Love Pictorial #9
True Love Pictorial v1 #9, 1954 - On board a pleasure boat, a woman catches her husband cheating with his secretary. Tellingly, the wife appears more annoyed than furious. Matt Baker anchors his superb figure drawings with strong vertical lines. Small details, such as the distant rocks and foreground deck chair, complete the setting. Though Baker is not attributed to any of inside stories, the opening panel to “What Will People Say?” is clearly his pencils. While other instances of his helping hand exist, this is among the most obvious. This golden age romance comic was published by St. John. This is number 8 of 10 True Love Pictorial issues with Baker art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Baker or >True Love Pictorial issues on ebay.

The cover is almost humorous. It seems like Brad has already made up his mind.
