Not Kirby, Young Romance #47 “A Man For My Birthday”

Young Romance #47
Young Romance #47 July1952) “A Man For My Birthday” by Bill Draut

Originally the Checklist indicated this was penciled by Kirby and inked by Simon. In the update (JKC #32) the inker was listed as Draut. Well the update is correct about the inker being Bill Draut, but he was also the penciler. In fact the entire store is done in a style so similar to other Bill Draut stories I am not at all sure why this one was singled out. I have no doubts that Draut not Kirby drew this piece.
