Never realized Simon and Kirby drew some Charlton covers. Sweet! I wonder if Kirby ever did any solo work for them?

When Mainline shut down, Charlton bought up their properties and published any unpublished work they had in the pipeline. They did this with a lot of the small publishers. Simon and Kirby didn't stay around long. There are some Kirby issues of "In Love".

I have to repair the images but, this is the page...

The "In Love" page is fixed and larger images are available/
This vintage of Charlton is really the only portion that interests me as far as collecting actual comics. I'm interested in the Canadian price variants in the 80's a little too, so I'd probably buy those also.

Nice! I really dig that #5 cover. Kirby could take something like romance books which most artists drew in a mundane plainess and make it look interesting when he was on.

Even on the #6 cover, she looks like she is truly longing for the guy and loves him.

#6 is growing on me the more I look at it.

I think what catches my eyes about #5 is the coloring and it really has that Kirby feel to it. Its a good combo of the two for me. I think if the coloring was different, it would seem a lot more plain to me.

#6 for some reason looks a lot less Kirby to me but I still see it. Maybe the inker toned down the Kirby and the colors seem less vibrant to me. But yes, Kirby has that way of showing emotion even on sterile shots like this. That chick does look like shes about to die if this guy doesnt confess his love for her. What catches my eye is the dude behind the cash register and the funky wallpaper emitting from his head. His face looks like hes watching the girl he loves being smitten with another guy and he cant do a thing about it. When you can see all that off a rather plain shot, I think youve done your job as illustrator very well.

Kirby lacks the pretty clean lines, but he makes up for it on efficiency and telling the story.
