CGC VF: 8.0
The legendary Matt Baker contributes his impeccable style and glamour to this rare and desirable war comic gem. Combining the lush lines and inviting heroines of the St. John romance titles with the relatable, rough and tumble world of post-WWII Army life comics, this unique and historic book is a highly-sought-after rarity that attracts both Baker aficionados and romance rarity collectors, as well as war comic completists. Baker has gained newfound appreciation in recent years both for his unusual bio -- he was one of the very few black artists working in Golden Age comics -- and his inimitable style, which stands alongside Raymond and Caniff as one of the finest illustrative artists working in comics at the time. His work, especially the very rare St. John's output, is sought after and highly prized, and this is one of the shining examples of his warm and inviting artistry.
