Teen-age Romances #19 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
Teen-age Romances v1 #19, 1951 - Matt Baker fills this entire issue with his resplendent drawings. Six stories of varying lengths chronicle the love lives of different women and the choices they make. Thematically, the most interesting is "Window Shopping for Love", where a girl becomes enamored with a painting at first, then the male model that posed for it. Artistically, all six tales are preciously rendered. To offset large amounts of dialogue and narration, the artist uses graphic devices (scrolls, hearts, etc.) to maintain the reader's interest. Baker's elegant cover replicates the opening scene in "I Betrayed My Sweetheart" and improves upon it further by streamlining the layout (this same story was later reprinted in Going Steady #14). This is number 19 of 42 Teen-age Romances issues with Baker art and/or covers. Find >this issue or more >Baker or >Teen-age Romances comics on ebay.
