A Matt Baker Romance Treasury: Volume 1: Gwandanaland Comics #1455 --- Stories From Diary Secrets (1952-1955)

228 Pages - ROMANCE / ARTIST

Matt Baker (1921-1959) was the first successful African-American comic book artists in America, and famous for his unique style. Baker worked in many genres, most famous for his portrayal of Phantom Lady, Canteen Kate, Sky Girl, and other beautiful female characters. It was only natural that Baker be recruited for love-based comics, where a healthy percentage of the characters would be women. While romance comics are often considered the second-string, when Matt Baker put his pen to the pages, these were exceptions.

This first book brings many of his covers and stories from DIARY SECRETS (1952-1955), a great example of pre-Code comics!
