interracial romance in a 1952 comic book?

It seems clear in the subtext in this version of King Solomon's Mines. I'm not sure it's as subtle as subtext on the cover: a white man and a black man appear to be fighting for the love of a black woman.

Yes, she's paler than the black guy. But she's still black in a time when interracial marriage was illegal in many states.
