Love Romances #102 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby
Love Romances v1 #102, 1961 - Jack Kirby uses his splash page drawing for the cover, juxtaposing a new scene beside it. Both of his interior stories are adequately done, despite a repetition of similar faces. Vince Colletta inks the first tale, but the second is perhaps by George Klein. The finishes on "Give Back My Heart" (see interior page shown below) is more appealing and sensitive, marred only by Kirby's painfully slow sequence on the final page. Rounding out the issue is two capable and enjoyable tales by Don Heck.
