Hi-School Romance #55 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Hi-School Romance v1 #55, 1956 - On this Jack Kirby cover, a young woman shows disapproval when a prettier girl catches her boyfriend's eye. While straightforward in theme, the artist adds some splendid touches. The gothic arch in the background suggests a church more than a high school. Its shape also visually connects the two interested parties. Note the lightning bolts on the blonde's dress, suggesting a spark perhaps? Kirby's efforts are augmented by a talented, uncredited inker. This is number 2 of 5 Hi-School Romance issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
