It Rhymes with Lust - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker
It Rhymes with Lust v1, 1950 - Possibly the first American graphic novel, this square-bound digest boasts over one hundred pages of Matt Baker art. Printed in black and white, but the artist applies screens throughout the story to increase depth (see interior page below). There are also fewer panels per page due to the smaller format. Neither of these seem to diminish the beauty of Baker's drawings, however. This is his longest comic book story by far, made more remarkable by the inclusion of twelve superb splashes. His cover of a femme fatale, seductive and conniving, is as good as any of his romance covers from the same period.
