A purplicious cover from L.B. Cole. Steamy Smiley.

Featuring "Scandal", a fairly jagged and incoherent ditty of a woman who starts to cat around from boredom in her new marriage and courts a rapscallion who dies in a car accident while trying to steal a kiss. After this is revealed in court, her husband leaves her. Distraught, she decides to murder the chap. Where did all the love go? Roll Eyes Disbrow signature in the last panel. Next up a one pager, "My Ten Cent Love," a great title for us comics fans, regarding a girl who finds out her fiancee has given her a dimestore engagement ring. Also, "A Twist of Fate" regarding a girl who's father falls ill and she is forced into working at a dime a dance hall. Can she find true love on the job and save her parents' home from forclosure? The text story is "Love Must Be Faithful". The third full length entry is "I Was Starved for Love" about a girl who never has any fun. She tries to get out a little and puts her mother in the hospital from worry. Caught necking in a stolen car, she's forced to spend the night in jail. Pa promises her a good whipping but a kindly officer steps in with some good advice for Dad to take it easy on the poor girl.

Comment: Is the art on "I Was Starved for Love" by Harry ("Bill the Galactic Hero") Harrison or Wally Wood?

Comment: The art on "I Was Starved for Love" is DEFINITELY not Wood, and I question whether it is Harry Harrison. There are some panels that look either look Wood inks or Wood swipes. GCD tentatively identifies this as Tuska or Masuli. To me it looks as if it was a rush job with whoever was available taken a hand.
