Love Romances #97 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Love Romances v1 #97, 1961 - For Jack Kirby fans, the good news is that this entire issue is drawn by him. Unfortunately, all four stories fall short of the artist's best work. Each opens with either a large title panel or full page splash, yet fails to establish interest. The layouts are monotonous and largely forgettable. Vince Colletta inks all four tales and neither enhances nor damages Kirby's lackluster pencils. See today's posts or more Kirby or Love Romances issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
