There was no particular reason I wanted to see Lovers 50... nothing to do with Colletta. Maneely, isn't it? There's something unintentionally seedy about that one... almost perverse. I think it's the way the guy is groping the woman. Let me see... maybe I do have a scan on disc...

Absolutely. Love it. Would love to have it. Seedy. But not intentionally. That's worth going for. I'll see what I can find. Not much, I would imagine.

 

Does this count?

I'm sure most of you are familiar with www.atlastales.com and what a valuable reference it can be for Atlas collectors of all genres. They attribute the cover of Lovers 50 to John Tartaglione which is a pretty good guess. The site also encourages contributions, scans, and information about interior stories, etc.... so don't be shy.... GOD BLESS...

Looks like they have the same scan of Lovers 50, but larger... (or the same copy was used in both scans?) Yeah, looks like a new favorite site for comic resources. Thanks, jimbo! (thumbs u

It's one of the best sites I've ever seen for a single comic publisher. It wasn't too long ago when I first found it through Scrooge..... they were still several hundred covers short of having them all collected. It's such a testimony to what teamwork can accomplish. It would probably be impossible for one person to gather them all.... I'm not even sure if any one person even has the full Atlas canon.... GOD BLESS...

Close to 80% of the Timely/Atlas canon has been digitally scanned. I know it's not as nice as having books in hand, but there is a great appeal to having immediate access.

Maybe not quite rare but one of my favorite non-Baker romance covers.

Many years ago, I was trying to acquire all the St. John Romance titles as well as all the Fox Romance books. I actually found it more difficult to get many of the Fox Romance titles and this cover is a good example of why people just weren't that interested in selling their Fox books.

Who was the cover artist on many of these great Fox romance books? From what I've seen the interior art was generally inferior to the covers.

Great book. I don't think I've seen it before.

 

The lady on the cover very much reminds me of Rita Hayworth. The illustrators of the day, including Baker, did look to starlets and fashion magazines for inspiration.
