Lovers #30 - Joe Kubert art


Lovers v1 #30, 1950 - Joe Kubert adeptly draws a tale of a small town girl turned movie star. Narrated by her best friend, most of the scenes are interactions between the various characters. The artwork is straightforward while maintaining clarity. Kubert shines brightest on the first panel, showing the friend's arrival amidst the glamorous symbols of Hollywood. Other artists in this issue include Bob Powell, Christopher Rule and John Buscema. This number is 2 of 2 Lovers issues with Kubert art and/or covers.

  1. I see a Caniff influence, especially in the stuck-up starlet.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out. Milton Caniff seemed to influence almost every comic book artist in those days.
