First Romance #43 - Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
First Romance magazine v1 #43, 1956 - A pretty woman catches a traveler's eye, prompting his girlfriend to forcibly pull him away. Jack Kirby's use of facial profiles flattens the foreground couple, almost like cardboard silhouettes. Additional details place the setting at a train station, but overall the number of components begin to crowd the layout. Other artists in this issue include Bob Powell. This is number 3 of 3 First Romance issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or First Romance issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
