    Description

    Matt Baker Crown Comics: Ace of the Newsreels Story Page 2 Original Art (Harvey Comics & McCombs Publ., 1946). Baker demonstrates his mastery of Good Girl Art with this large-scale composition, depicting the ominous beginning of an adventure in China. The lush brushwork and vivid facial expressions -- not to mention the environmental details -- make this a standout page from one of the great innovators of comic-book storytelling. Ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 12.25" x 18.25". Light toning and three nicked corners, outside the panel borders. Excellent condition.
