A pop-culture phenomenon, romance comic books numbered in the hundreds in the late 1940s and 1950s. Fans could not get enough of these wonderfully overwrought tales of tragic love, triumphant love, and dangerous love offered alongside advice columns, quizzes, and articles. Agonized Love is a colorful return to that era. An anthology of vintage love comics covers, advertisements, advice columns, and full reproduction of numerous stories, this colorful volume is a collection of the best the genre had to offer during its heyday in the late 1940s and 1950s. This book is a valentine to the era. It will be of interest to comics and graphic novel fans, those with an interest in nostalgia, and the chick-lit audience.
