Harvey's (True) Love Problems and Advice Illustrated #15 is going up now!

******************************************************************************

May, 1952. Romance books aren't exactly my forte, but it looks like the first two stories, "Love for Sale!" and "My Phantom Lover," could be Al Avison, and "Too Good at Love!" might be Jack Sparling. Cover by Lee Elias.

A quick Art-Spotting lesson before I go to bed:
Love For Sale is Lee Elias over Warren Kremer layouts
My Phantom Lover is John Sink
Too Good at Love IS by Jack Sparling !!!
My Life Was a Lie is Tom Hickey

Good night. (|:{>

Thanks! I guess I should have gone with my first instinct on "Love for Sale!" which was Elias (although I wouldn't have come up with Warren Kremer). But then I saw Avison was linked to Love Problems in '52, and some of the work in those two stories reminded me of some Green Hornet attributed to him. I don't believe I've ever seen anything by Sink on Hickey before, so I would have never spotted them, but they're on my radar now. Like I said, romance books aren't my forte.

And, unless I'm mistaken, the one-pager in the center-fold ("Should I Give Up My Career For Marriage?") is by a rather sedate Bob Powell (and studio?).

I could see that. It looked familiar, especially the expressive eyes (something I associate with Powell), but nobody came to mind. The illo. in the text "Suspicious of Love" is nagging at me too, but again I can't place it. The woman almost looks like an Eisner-swipe to me in some ways, maybe that's it. I know I've seen a drawing similar...

Centerfold strip is by Bob Powell (don't know about "shop" here - looks pretty typical to me) and the text illo is by Sparling. If I can be blunt here: looking for "a similar drawing" is one of the best ways to drive yourself crazy. Looking for "HOW" someone draws is much more productive than trying to memorize "WHAT" they drew. IMHO and FWIW.

 Nice issue, Eric. Clothes Plenty Pickens is an odd little feature.

Eastern Color's Heroic Comics #24 is going up now!

******************************************************************************

May, 1944. Heroic's shift from superheroes to war heroes was becoming obvious by the time this book came out. Hydroman, Man O'Metal, and Music Master had been religated to the back of the book, with just 6 pages each. However, Music Master managed to squeeze in a 7th in the form of a PSA drawn by Jimmy Thompson.

Wow, it's been WAY too long since I stopped in here, let alone posted anything! Well, I'm rectifying that now. True Comics #53 from the Parents Magazine Institute is going up now!

******************************************************************************

October, 1946. Among this issue's features are Eleanor Roosevelt, "Lady of Democracy," "Tom Paine and his Mighty Pen," and Wyatt Earp in "Sheriff's Secret." The book features art by Al Plastino and Jack Sparling.

******************************************************************************

[EDIT: Removed Chas. Quinlan's name from possible credits.]

I don't see any Quinlan here, Eric, and I would dearly love to know what Plastino looked like here. Can you ID the feature(s) that he did? Thanks.

"Monkey Business on Wall St." is what I most strongly believe to be Plastino. "Tom Paine and His Mighty Pen" is one I thought was possibly Plastino, but was uncertain.

As for Quinlan, that was a goof that I didn't catch (but I'm glad you did). I was looking at True #54, seeing if I could I.D. any artists that did both issues, and saw a story I thought looked kind of like Quinlan ("Beloved Composer"). I must have forgotten what I was looking at because I put him down as a possible for "Sheriff's Secret" in #53. I've removed him from my text file credits now, thanks for noticing!
