Cindy 37, 1949

This is a really early "Marvel" comic; the indicia even still lists Timely as the publisher. I don't know the artist responsible for this cover, but it's a real knockout! It's even a kind of greytone production, giving an almost painterly effect with added depth. The Archie-style interior stories have equally good art, simple but very well drawn, and lots of fun. I think a couple stories are by Stan Goldberg and/or Dan DeCarlo. One story looks to me like it was done by Bill Woggon, or someone who was decent at apeing his style. Definitely a seldom-seen cover, from an under-rated series!
