Check out this very nice LARGE ART GOLDEN AGE Romance SPLASH page, which was penciled and inked by the great Matt Baker, from the story titled: "Love to Share!" This nice SPLASH page features the beautiful girl of the story crying with her man! This is Baker pencils and inks, perhaps with an inking assist from fellow Iger Studios artist John Thornton. This story was not drawn in 1953, though that was the first time the story saw print. It would not be published in the United States until 1958, by I. W. Publishing in the Super Comics title LOVE AND MARRIAGE (don't know if they bought the title from Superior Publishing or if I. W. Publishing was partnered with Superior). This story was drawn about 1947 or 1948, judging from the art and the story of the returning serviceman. Though done for Iger, this story was inventory (stockpiled for later publication), and became part of a large lot of stories sold by Iger to Superior Comics/Superior Publishing in Canada in the early Fifties as he (Jerry Iger) down-sized his operations (he would close his shop in 1955, just two years after this story saw print in 1953). It may seem different to some as by the time this story saw print Baker's style had changed and matured a bit, and also we are accustomed to seeing him inked by Kamen (a lot), who had a very heavy brush. Also, this story is rather static, so there isn't the action we are accustomed to in so much of Baker's work for Iger Studios. The lead character, the lingerie panels, the look of the people, the way the hands are drawn, are Baker. GOLDEN AGE MATT BAKER BABE art is VERY hard to find in the hobby these days, so don't miss out on a great opportunity here to own a nice GOLDEN Age LARGE ART MATT BAKER drawn SPLASH page! ALL art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website!
