Love For Sale

Friday Comic Book Day.

These weeks I am selling my Timely romance comics on ebay. My seller name is geapelde. After having collected a large percentage of fifties Timely comics (the company that became Marvel) I have decided to send them back to their country of origin. After a couple of weeks of satisfactory sales, next week I am going to sell met Post-Code Love Romances. even though the pot-code period of romance had less surprises, there ae still a lot of good artists to fid, as you will see below: Vine Colletta, Jay Scott Pike, John Tartaglione, An Brewster, Mike Sekowsky (doing his Alex Toth impression), Reed Crandall, Stan Lee younger brother Larry Lieber in a very early job, lots of att Maker, Tom Scheure and in the later issues jack Kirby, Don Heck and Bob Forgione.

I'm fairly certain that is Toth and not Sekowsky. Page 3 panel one is the clencher. I know Sekowsky and Andru etc.. did some very Tothish work.

Thx for all you do Ger

Yeah, I'm leaning that way, too. If not, it's some pretty good Sekowsky.

It's not Toth, at least according to the Alex Toth Index . It leans toward Sekowsky as artist. Regardless, it's some darn fine art!

What would clinch it for me is if some Toth fan could show me that at least some of these poses were in fact copied from other Toth stories.
