    Description

    Alex Toth and Mike Peppe Intimate Love #26 Complete 10-Page Story "Lonesome for Kisses" Original Art (Standard, 1953). Alex Toth practically re-invented the art of romance comics in the fifties, and this beautifully detailed melodrama features a character, Jimmy Farr, who's a dead ringer for a Toth favorite, movie star Errol Flynn (who even makes a cameo of panel 1 on page 8). Every page of this delightful yarn, masterfully inked by Mike Peppe, is filled with expressive portraits and exceptional staging. Each page of this bubbly romantic comedy has an image area of 12" x 18.5". There are scattered stains, and some pasted-on lettering corrections; otherwise, the pages average Very Good condition. As an "art bonus" several of the backs of pages have inked sketches, most likely done by Peppe.
