Cartoonists Make Better Lovers : Reed Crandall

Reed Crandall was a true superstar of the Golden Age. His figures on heroic strips like the Ray and Firebrand look like Greek statues come to life. As the times changed Reed was quite capable of delivering top-notch work in any genre his editors required. He was a particularly loyal man, maintaining a near exclusive association with Quality Comics, until the company folded.

Romance however was a milieu that he rarely worked in. That’s a pity because those jobs are the equal to any in his resume. Here are a pair of stories that he did for the company in 1950. From HOLLYWOOD SECRETS #2 you have “My Heart’s In The Saddle”,

Next is “Night Of Surrender” as published in LOVE CONFESSIONS issue 4.
