Paper Romance

From Daring Love 1 a rarity,
a Steve Ditko Romance Story. 
Also one of his first published stories.

Per Blake Bell, "Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko" , Steve Ditko's first published work (his second sale, appearing before his first sale) is penciling and inking the story "Paper Romance" in Gillmor Magazines' DARING LOVE #1 (September-October 1953). According to Blake, "So buried was this title [DARING LOVE] in the dustbin of history that Ditko's contributions went undiscovered until the late 1980s."

  1. Thanks for sharing this. Although given that he draws some of the oddest looking women in comics it's a good thing Ditko didn't do more Romance work.
