I knew that wasn’t going to last long when I saw it, glad it went to a good boardie!

I'd rather have this than those so I think this was a very wise move. Congratulations on an awesome book!

New acquisition today, it’s a Baker cover I’ve never seen before and there’s nothing in the usual databases. No Baker inside as far as I can tell.

Of course Sqeggs (Tony) has one, anyone else?

Had mine for a while, not a common book.

Why do you believe this?  Do you see Baker's hand in this cover?  He's done other issues of All Picture...

I don't see any Baker here.  (shrug)

I agree, it looks more like a Maurice Whitman Girl IMHO

Does look similar to Whitman. He did do work for St. John I think. 

Agree it does not look at all like Baker.

I PM’d with another boardie and he asked the same question. While at the show yesterday, my email to another expert before buying the book went astray, and the miscommunication was my fault. 

Tough book, but not Baker.

The seller (Terry) also had a Comedy Carnival which he said was all Baker inside (it had a PR and TAR), but I didn’t look to confirm (FYI).

'Yall got me curious. I knew it wasn't a Baker cover. So I pulled out my copy. These St John giants are comprised of unsold issues (4). I went into The Grand Comic Book Database and discovered that my copy contains Strange Terrors #1, House of Terror #1 (re-colored due to the 3D), Weird Horrors #2 and Authentic Police Cases #18 which almost certianly contains a Baker story. All issues are probably different.

Now I have to fight the urge to see what my other St John annuals contain. That should take the rest of the day...:roflmao:

My Comedy Carnival contains mostly funny animal content but it does contain Canteen Kate #3 (all Baker). I have had another copy with same contents and one with nothing but Mighty Mouse. It could very well have contained 4 Baker books. NEVER judge a book by it's cover. You should have looked...
