Classic 1950s covers [Hi-School Romance, Love Problems, Wyatt Earp]

HI-SCHOOL ROMANCE #55, 1956. Boy, that guy's in trouble. Very nice, understated cover, which really shows off Kirby's skill with facial expressions.

TRUE LOVE PROBLEMS AND ADVICE ILLUSTRATED #38, 1956. This is one of my absolute favourite of the romance covers, and I just wish there was a Kirby story to go along with it. Heck, I'd like to know if there's a non-Kirby story that fits that cover in the issue.

WYATT EARP #24, 1959. And more western fun for all. I like how in a composition like this Kirby manages to capture a key moment, with Earp just ready to move, frozen in a classic Kirby pose.
