Somehow neglected to note where I bought this raw. Probably the same place as the 51.

I love the way he isn't looking at her but off into the middle distance, possibly checking out his next conquest. hm

Yes, and she is holding on for dear life!

Fujitani did some good work. The glare from my scanner makes it seem as if an usher is using his flashlight on them and is about to tell them to break it up! :)

Tough to find these books even in presentable mid-grade.

I’m a big Fujitani fan, met him once at SDCC.

His painted Crime Does Not Pay covers are outstanding, as well.

I think over in the Baker thread, we nailed down who did this cover. Darned if I can remember who it was, though.

Of course, given that I can't seem to remember which books I still own, that may not be surprising.

"Downes" is the signature (more clearly signed on some of the Manhunt covers) right side underneath her glove.  I'm still working on figuring out the first name....  I can't find anything.

Your eyes are better than mine! I can't see anything under her glove. hm

"No Desire to Live!" You have to love the continuity in the EC universe. This girl is later seen as a zombie in Haunt of Fear 29. :whatthe:

Relatively common issue and this one has a bad wrap (although nice pq), but one of my favorite Cole romance covers. Does make me wonder whether he drew it not expecting there to be any dialog (which the cover would be off without, imo). Maybe before the war they met at ventriloquist school? hm

This one seems similar to many of his other romance covers. A tough issue, apparently, because this copy is tied for highest graded. I don't imagine that will last. Actually a nice, bright copy, although marred by the cover damage.
