We saw last week how wonderfully legendary artist John Buscema portrayed women in swimsuits...
...so here's a cover that takes a scene occurring (in the story) during the chilly Autumn and turns it into a hot Summer pic...
When this story by writer Stan Lee, penciler John Buscema, and inker Sal Buscema (yes, John's little brother, who's an equally-gifted penciler) initially-appeared in Marvel's My Love V2N1 (1969), it wasn't the cover-featured tale.
But, when it was reprinted in Marvel's My Love Special #1 (1971), a new cover, based on the last panel of Page 6, was commissioned.
Guess they felt a bare-chested guy and bikini-clad girl would sell better than the sweater-clad couple in the story...
