Passionate Kisses

001 0002

A sheltered girl, a boy from the wrong side of the tracks and a speeding hot rod.

Add Alex Toth’s typically gorgeous art and you have the makings of a Pre-Code romance classic!

From Best Romance #5 (Standard Comics, 1952), here’s “My Stolen Kisses.” The art is credited to Toth and Art Saaf.

Fantagraphics is due to publish a book examining Toth’s tenure with Standard, appropriately titled Setting the Standard: Comics by Alex Toth 1952-1954, later this year. Check it out!

  1. Hi

    I’m the son of Art Saaf, and am researching his career. I know that he did the story “My kind of Love” in this #5 issue, but didn’t know that he was involved with the story posted.
    Can you tell me your source of attribution?, thanks.
