I’m not a big fan of Norman Rockwell, but as I was browsing through an old romance comic, what to my wondering eyes should appear but more fodder for an irregular feature here at RCN entitled “Connections.”
The story, “Powerhouse of Deceit!,” from Dream of Love #9, is uncredited, but GCD identifies the penciller and inker as Myron Fass. The comic was published in 1958, but the story, apparently, is a reprint from Great Lover Romances #3, Toby Press, 1951 series.
(Hey, trivia fans! Do you know who was art director and comics editor at Toby Press in 1951? Here’s a hint: I mentioned it in a previous post. That’s right: it was none other than the creator of the comic strips “Miss Peach” and “Momma,” Mell Lazarus, though I think he still spelled his first name “Mel” at that time.)
Norman Rockwell’s famous illustration, Strictly a Sharpshooter, is from 1941.
