Sometimes the opening caption says it all...
...as this never-reprinted tale from Timely's Ideal Love and Romances #5 (1949) demonstrates.
Artist Pete Tumlinson was extremely versatile,
Besides romance books, he did war, horror, crime, and Western stories with equal aploomb!
Rendering over 150 stories (and some covers) from 1948 to 1955, he moved into commercial art (mostly book illustration) after the big comic book implosion caused by the "Seduction of the Innocent" witchhunt put many writers and artists out of work.
The writer is unknown.
BTW, though this issue was #5, it was actually the one and only issue of Ideal Love and Romance!
Before that, it was Ideal: a Classical Comic,
With #6 it became simply Love Romances, and survived for one hundred issues until #106 (1963)!
