Gene Colan Romance Page Identified!
Well howdy there! I have to apologize for things being pretty quiet over here at Sequential Crush lately. Between work and everything, I am a little behind! But! I am gonna do my best to get caught up, and continue on in bringing romance comic book gems to you!
Last week, fellow romance comic book enthusiast -- Darci, brought a piece of original art to my attention -- a Gene Colan page that had been featured on the blog, Jon's Random Acts of Geekery a few years ago. In the post, Jon posed the question, "Does anyone know which issue of which Marvel romance comic this Gene Colan page came from?"
Darci provided me with a list of stories that were possible matches, and after flipping through pages of the Marvel romance issues I have in my collection, I was able to figure it out!
The page comes from the story, "A Boy to Marry!" that appeared in Our Love Story #8 (December 1970). The Gene Colan penciled/Dick Ayers inked story was subsequently reprinted in Our Love Story #24 (August 1973). Thanks Darci for the fun little challenge and the great excuse to look at lots of gorgeous Colan romance art -- more of which I will share with you next week!
