Description
Romance comic books filled newsstands to overflowing during their heyday in the 1940s and 50s, with titles like "I Was Engaged to a Puppet," "Men Were My Guinea Pigs," "The Bride Wore Buckskin," "I Gave Boys the Green Light," and "Communist Kisses." Reproducing cover art, title pages, and dozens of full stories—as well as quizzes ("Are You Ready for Marriage?"), confessional letters from readers, and tips on choosing the right man—this comic anthology runs the gamut from honeymoon to heartbreak, first love to marriage hell. Pop culture fanatic Michael Barson's witty commentary accompanies the vividly reproduced dot-screened art.
