"Stan Drake's work on The Heart of Juliet Jones was brilliant and innovative from the start--and it got better and better as he grew even more confident in his craft." ...a damned sight wittier, smarter and more sophisticated than any [modern "soap operas"]." From the introduction by Howard Chaykin. Drake's classic comic strip, collecting all the dailies and Sundays from this American original featuring amazing slick, realistic artwork. This 1950s soap opera strip had a modern look and gripping story arcs and was a big success in its day.

"What it owed to the media of the world around it could be traced to the work being done by Al Parker, Coby Whitmore, Jon Whitcomb, and the men and women they influenced with their work in [the sophisticated fiction and art appearing in the then-hugely popular magazines] Cosmopolitan, Redbook, The Ladies Home Journal and others...And, of course, the Technicolor so-called "Woman's Pictures" being turned out in Hollywood by the likes of George Cukor, Douglas Sirk and George Stevens.

Milton Caniff called it "Illustration quality pictures on a daily basis."
