First Love Illustrated #68 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
First Love Illustrated v1 #68, 1956 - Emerging from the Tunnel of Love, a young man wipes off the lipstick from his girlfriend's kisses. An older couple, riding in the same boat, looks on approvingly, as does the ride attendant. Jack Kirby enhances the scene with romantic ornamentation. The curvilinear shapes and cupid symbol add a level of sophistication not often seen on carnival rides. Kirby adds just enough flourish to catch the eye. This is number 2 of 4 First Love Illustrated issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or First Love Illustrated issues. See also this blog's Jack Kirby checklist.
