Creig Flessel One-Pager - Without A Doubt


The late issues of Young Love and Young Romance feature delicious one pagers -- most illustrated by two of my favorite romance artists, Win Mortimer and Creig Flessel. "Without a Doubt" by Flessel from Young Romance #203 (January/February 1975) captures true romance and all the groovy aspects of the 1970s -- bell bottoms, platforms, and the Afro hairstyle that gained prominence during the Civil Rights Movement.

  1. Oh, I do hope that girl's just getting carried away in the heat of the moment. Of course she can live without him, he should be a bonus, not a reason for living.

    Er, am I being unromantic?

  2. Martin: I think it is just love "rhetoric" if you know what I mean!

  3. Creig was a great talent and a wonderful guy. Longtime leader of the Berndt Toast Gang, Creig was the first professional cartoonist I met and he treated me like I was an old friend.
