    Su Gumen - Original Cover Art for All New Teen Confessions #86 (Charlton, 1974). By the late '60s and '70s, the superheroes were once again the main industry sellers, and genres such as war, western and romance were slowly, but surely, on the wane. Marvel still published My Love, DC had Girls' Romances and Girls' Love Stories, but the one publisher that was still publishing a whole line of romance titles was Charlton. This Derby, Connecticut publisher put out dozens of titles, amounting to almost a quarter of the total output of love, love, LOVE. This gem from 1974 is a slightly different take on the subject, the handsome leading man is... a hippie! Not even that tacky fringed vest could turn off the beautiful girl from uptown, who was smitten by the hairy motorcycle-riding stranger. The artist, Su Gumen, put the art together in a style that's a little bit Romita Sr. and a little bit Colan. The overall art size is 14" x 20.5" with a 12.5" x 19" image area. The art is very clean, with a small stain under the logo from a missing paste-up. Includes the original logo and indicia paste-ups.
