I love romance comics... mainly as anthropological artifacts of the social patterns of a far off time....
Also, some of them are pretty darn funny, since they're mostly written by men!
Take some of those Charlton books below... it's a safe bet they were all written by Joe Gill... and when I think of romance, Joe Gill is the first thing that pops into my head.....
Actually - No. I'm being sacastic.
The art, on the other hand, ranges from ghastly (and NOT in a good way) to sublime, for example the Tom Sutton psycheledic cover to I Love You 118, plus outstanding work by Gene Colan, Jay Scott Pike and John Rosenberger.
See? This blog isn't just the boy's club-house after all!
