Kirby Kovers #19

First up in this week's Kirby Kovers feature is the cover of Love Romances #106! It's sometimes all too easy to forget, given how much Kirby is thought of for his superheroes and cosmic comics, that he and Joe Simon pioneered the romance comic! I wonder if Stan assigned Jack to do this cover to see if the Kirby magic would raise sales on this title? I know that (Charlton aside) romance comics were already dying out, and would be all but gone by the early 70s (again, aside from Charlton). Anyway, Kirby's certainly using his ability for the dramatic well here... there's no doubt what's going on in the minds of all three characters here!
