The Daily Comic Book Coffee, number 62: “What’s Ambition, Anyway?” drawn by John Rosenberger, written by Richard Hughes, and lettered by Ed Hamilton, from Confessions of the Lovelorn #81, published by ACG in May 1957.

Beautiful, talented Jill Sanders dreams of becoming an actress. She auditions with famed producer-director Carl Rogers, who agrees to see how she works out in rehearsals for his upcoming musical. While having coffee with Rogers and the rest of the cast, Jill thinks to herself “He’s a real professional — and a swell guy!” Unfortunately for Jill, her high school rival Marion Major has also joined the cast, and pretty soon the ambitious, arrogant blonde is sinking her claws into Rogers himself. Due to budget cuts Jill is squeezed out of the chorus and finds herself back waiting tables, and the despairing young woman believes she has lost out on both show business and Carl Rogers. However, when Carl’s investors back out on him, Jill convinces her restaurateur boss to help finance the show. It’s a success, and Carl has fallen in love with Jill.

Artist John Rosenberger’s career stretched over 30 years, from 1946 to 1975. He worked for several different companies, drawing stories in various genres. His style was definitely well-suited for romance, as he had an aptitude for rendering beautiful, fashionable women. Towards the end of his career he penciled Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane for DC Comics, where once again his knack for drawing lovely ladies was a definite asset. Rosenberger became the regular artist on Wonder Woman in 1975, but sadly only completed two issues before taking ill. He passed away in January 1977 at the age of 58.
