Romancing The Show

Sunday Meskin Measures.

As I said last week, around the start of 1952 we get to the point where Mort Meskin's work for the romance comics (like that of Bill Draut and Jack Kiby himself) gets to be near perfect. It helps that in this issue he is not inked by George Roussos, who was a functional inkter but did not bring out the best of Meskin's work. He needed more detail, not less. According to Jim VandeBOncoeur Jr. the two pages was inked by Joe Simon and I guess Meskin himself did the other two. I have also include a onepager by Rousos for comparison.
