Here is the first page of an eight page short romance comic I penciled for PAUL KUPPERBERG’S SECRET ROMANCES from Charlton Neo. Paul wrote the story. I worked with Paul before for a good two years at least on the Life With Archie magazine. I always get a bit of a thrill working with Paul because he was the writer on The New Adventures Of Superboy, a comic I followed avidly and faithfully as a kid. Paul, in fact, wrote the book just as it was starting to get really good and a little more sophisticated.
The inks are by another of the Life With Archie crew, my old buddy, Bob Smith. Bob is an extremely versatile and accomplished inker. He’s a workhorse who’s been in the biz for decades and he’s another guy who’s stuff I was reading when I was a kid. Bob inked another of my favorites when I was a kid, Captain Carrot. I’m always looking back on the old stuff I read as a kid and discovering that it had been inked by Bob! He’s been everywhere!
The nice vibrant colors are by Mort Todd himself!
It was a fun story and a nice departure from what I usually draw. Please let me know what you think. As far as I know, the story will be released in Paul Kupperberg’s Secret Romances #2 later this year.
