Matt Baker draws "South Sea Girl" from Seven Seas Comics #1 (April 1946),originally published by Leader Enterprises/Universal Phoenix Features, and written by Manning Lee Stokes. South Sea Girl was also known as Alani, and she differed from most jungle girls in both her location and her usual garb, a sarong (inspired by the popular Dorothy Lamour films). The Catacombs is grateful to Don "Zu-Gogo" Falkos for providing the scans for this story. Note: The copyright for this issue, its contents and artwork belong to the original publisher and/or the creators and is reproduced here solely for entertainment purposes.
This work exhibits a much better understanding of perspective than most of Baker's work that I've seen from the '40s.
Not only that, but the whole thing just pops right off of the page in a very pleasant way.
