Page Peterson - The Original Love Guru!

We all have guilty pleasures, don't we? I have to admit, I've been watching a bit of The Millionaire Matchmaker on Hulu lately, and man! It is addictive! So much so that after a couple episodes, I start having these grand delusions that I too could be a matchmaker -- but I digress! While I enjoy Patti Stanger's no holds barred style of love advice, she definitely isn't the first to dish it out to a clueless clientele. Watch Page in action here as she sets a couple of young ladies on the path to true love in two 1972 issues of Young Romance

  1. I'm sure the second one is inked by Vince Colletta.

  2. Good call, Glenn. I can't put my finger on the penciler, but the inks certainly do look like Colletta's.

  3. Can’t say for certain, but Alan Kupperberg penciled a lot of these Page Peterson fillers.

    1. From his site, sounds like he did starting in Young Romance #183.

      I wonder if he'd be willing to talk a bit more about his time illustrating Ms. Peterson?!
