Original Vintage Art & Text

One comic authority guessed that Matt Baker was the penciler of this art. Anther guessed that Vince Colletta penciled it. Both agreed that Colletta inked it. So I’m just crediting it to the Vince Colletta studio to cover my bases. (Colletta had a lot of different artists assisting him in his studio.) The art is from “His Face Before Me” in Romance Stories of True Love #51, Sept. 1958. Harvey Comics.
