Make Love And War

Sunday Meskin Measures.

This time we have a bit of war romance from Mort Meskin, from Young Romance #59 from July 1953. About a year after that Meskin started trying to sell his work at DC, starting with the war books. Apparently some room had freed up there, because it would be the entry point for Joe Kubert, Ross Andru and Mike Esposito, Gene Colan and Bernie Krigstein as well. Unfortunately he was told that his loose style was not good enough for the cleaner DC books, so he had to toughen up his style. But here he is, still doing his thing for Simon and Kirby (and Prize).
