Romance Comic Book Fans Speak... Colletta Wasn't So Bad After All!

Good evening, everyone! I really appreciate you all taking the time to voice your opinion about Vince Colletta on the last poll! It was something I was really curious about. I have heard from a number of people who really dislike his work, and then on the flipside -- I have heard a lot of people say they do like him. It left me a little stumped, but I think I have a clearer picture now on people's views on Colletta's romance work! On to the results!

  • Out of 33 voters, 8 gave Colletta high marks and said he was one of the greats
  • In the majority were 13 voters who felt that Colletta wasn't too shabby
  • Only 5 voters were indifferent to Colletta's work
  • And finally, 7 voters were not fans of Colletta

Very interesting! I had no idea how it was going to turn out, so thanks for participating! If you missed this one, be sure to get in on the current one about our favorite talented lady, Elizabeth (Liz) Berube!
