A MOON, A GIRL, ROMANCE "Hearts Along the Ski Trail"

Despite the fact the cover is not by Wally Wood...
...this is, indeed, another never-reprinted tale by the legendary artist!
And it's winter-themed, on top of that!
"I see enough smart women!
I'm sick of them!"
This is the guy she wants?
I bet this marriage doen't last more than a year...if that!
Taken from EC's A Moon, A Girl, Romance #11 (1950), this never-reprinted tale was penciled by Harry Harrison and inked by Wally Wood.
Harry worked in comics from 1947 to 1955, first as a penciler, then as a writer.
He moved on to writing sci-fi short stories and novels, creating several series including Stainless Steel Rat, DeathWorld, and Bill the Galactic Hero, winning numerous awards during his career.
Harry and Wally worked together a number of times, usually with Harrison penciling and Wood inking.
The writer is unknown, but could be Harrison or Wood.
The cover, BTW, was by the multi-talented (editor-writer-artist) Al Feldstein.
As a special project from now through Valentine's Day we're running a series of these never-reprinted tales taken directly from the original comics, alternating them with our ongoing soap opera Reach for Happiness!
Next week:
The Finale of our Wally Wood Tribute, just in time for Valentine's Day...
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Oh, you've heard that, eh?)

And now a word from out sponsor...
