At the same time that Mr. Mxyzptlk was vexing Superman with inter-dimensional magic pranks, girls were treated to romance stories like “Love of a Lunatic.” While Jimmy Olsen was turning into a Giant Turtle Boy (complete with purple swim trunks) a bear in the zoo was playing cupid in “Bosco Plays Matchmaker!” And during the same era when Paste Pot Pete was making things sticky for the Human Torch, romance comics were featuring four-color fables like “I Fell For A Commie.”
Since romance comics were ostensibly love stories intended for young girls, these weird comics seem even weirder in that context.
Leave it to editor/designer Clizia Gussoni and comic book archeologist Craig Yoe to unearth some of the weirdest of these tales and collect them into a lovely, hardcover coffee-table book. (Although your friends may think you’re weird if you leave this out on your coffee table!)
The stories in this volume originally appeared in impossible-to-find vintage comic books, and were recently reprinted in the Yoe Books ongoing comics series Weird Love. Even if you already bought the comic book editions there’s a good argument to be made for getting the sturdy hardback volume which will likely last a lifetime. What a nice heirloom this would make for your heirs!
As usual with Yoe Books there’s high-quality printing and binding, top-notch design, and loving attention to detail. As I’ve said before, you don’t get the same experience on a Kindle.Read more ›
