"Sally loved working in a radio station, and she loved Hugh Clancy, the stations leading disc jockey, until that fateful day when her hopes for a career and a beautiful romance crashed and shattered at her feet..."
You'll thrill, you'll cry, you'll rock to the beat of today's two nutty music-influenced comic book tales. We'll prove again that radio and romance don't mix!
Well, I goofed up last time and didn't get my post for the blog completed on schedule, so here we go with another try!
First up, we'll warm up with a short tale of the Vigilante from December 1950, which involves a "ballad about an imaginary buckaroo" and the radio broadcasts thereof, followed by a romance tale based at a radio station, along with all of the heartache that that naturally entails!
Some very tight and slick 1950s comic book art on display this week - right after the jump!
The cover art credits for Action 151: pencils by Wayne Boring, and inks by Stan Kaye.
Now we segue forward to June 1952 and the eighth issue of "Cinderella Love" from publishers Ziff-Davis, and drawn by the prolific Bob Oksner, author unknown. We'll start right off with the front and inside front cover, for once.
Careful with those records, you fool!
Ahh, the "Up and Out" bra. Oh, modern science, how useful you are!
We hope you enjoyed our little visit to a 1952 radio station, very much like the modern WFMU of today.
Join us in two weeks for a fresh salvo of four-color goodness!
