Jonnie Love - Sexiest Man Alive?

"The Town that Forgot Love"
Charlton Comics
Teen-Age Love
Number 94
1973

There can be no doubt the women love an artist. Whether a man can paint, sculpt or string a coherent sentence together, we find it irresistible. But sometime around the age of 32 a whole new world of sexy opens up - a man who knows how to fix things. And there is nothing hotter!

About this time conversations start to change from "And then he sketched me in charcoals while I slept." to "Afterwards he fixed that toilet downstairs that kept running."

Now men, don't be foolish enough to make the assumption that you can, if nothing else, skate by on good-looks and talent all your life. At some point you WILL be asked to install a ceiling fan. And if you know how to snake a drain or switch out an alternator! OMG are you getting lucky tonight!

With that said, we come to Jonnie Love.

Everyone's favorite stray, Jonnie is adabtable as well as bearded. And he has learned a great deal on the lonely road. A lot more than just that there are alternatives to washing dishes to get a free meal. Yep, a lot more.

In The Town that Forgot Love, Jonnie's never ending drive home brings him to yet another town in need of his help.



White - Jonnie's favorite kind of trash!



He says "family" but I think it's a Social Security check.



See! Women of all ages just really like Jonnie Love.



Wait! Who's seducing who here?



Fix up the place? Jonnie, Bonnie is only a teenager, you're pulling out the big guns for the wrong woman!.



Oh, Bonnie, where to begin?



Oh, except for the time where the disapproval of my principle and my parents had me running away for, like, twenty years.



Jonnie, this is kind of private. Can you and creepy green sweater guy give them some room?



Happy Hump Day everyone!

  1. Spectergirl: My all time fav Jonnie Love! The art is fantastic (can't place it, though); and the lovester is soooo series in this one (even more than usual - for a guy named "jonnie Love" he seems extremely somber). And for a comic in 1973 to take this kind of pro-Vietnam veteran stance is just so cool.

    And you are so right about the artist-to-handyman progression with regards to sending the little, lighted spark to a woman’s eyes as the years pass. Used to see it for slinging the syllables. Now see it for installing a garbage disposal (the wordsmith thing gets a polite "Oh, really?").

  2. Mykal: I tried to find out information on the artist but had no luck. And the style isn't one I recognize either.

    I also really liked the soldier support message that was probably pretty ballsy at the time with Charlton's intended market. So, of course, I ignored it completely in lieu of Jonnie Love is hot jokes!

    See! Installing a garbage disposal! You need to play that sort of thing up for all it's worth. Maybe have it printed on a nice fitted t-shirt or, at the very least, one of those trucker caps!

  3. This paragraph started off so well: "There can be no doubt the women love an artist. Whether a man can paint, sculpt or string a coherent sentence together, we find it irresistible.

    But then came this: "But sometime around the age of 32 a whole new world of sexy opens up - a man who knows how to fix things. And there is nothing hotter!"

    ...not knowing how to fix a damn thing (except maybe a boxing match, but that was another life), I always suspected my art skills were no match for the pragmatic he-manliness of being able to fix stuff.

    *sigh*

  4. Rob!: That does not sound like the same man who was willing to choke down bad tasting health food cookies to preserve his love life!

    You go grab a tool of some kind (any kind) and start hitting pipes with it or something! If you have to, just tell your woman that while she was out, the plumbing began to leak and you fixed it! (That should at least buy you some time while you check out home repair books for the library. You'll find them in the 643s!)

  5. I've been living my life backwards! I learned how to work on crap in my 20s, and as I've grown older, I've tried to spend more time writing.

    Suddenly everything makes sense!

  6. The art on this one is great -- dark... moody... sexy...

  7. 7: Luckily for me, being good at both has worked out well. :)

    Jacque: I am a little surprised at exactly how popular the art is for this story. And idea on the artist?

  8. This one is really special Spectergirl. I've never seen this issue. Thanks for posting it, and for your womanly insight. Now I know why my wife always seemed to be more interested after I'd spent the day fixing the AC ducts or replacing the back door! And I thought it was all just random good fortune!
