Romance in Comic Books

I thought it might be interesting to take a look at the many genres that appeared in comic books when comic books were hugely popular. I was surprised to see so many different comic books that featured romance.

Growing up and reading comic books, I read funny stories and cowboys and horror and plenty of other comic books but never any in romance. Not surprising. After seeing how popular romantic comic book stories were, and with romance being so popular in fiction books, I wonder if there would be room for old romance comic books being brought back to life?

Any thoughts?

The Fly

OK. This obviously isn't The Fly you might be thinking of. You know, the one where a man gets into a transport chamber and there's a fly inside. He transports and his head transfers to the fly and the fly head transfers to body. A classic horror story.

This is the cover of an old comic book and while I'm guessing this picture was supposed to scare, it's pretty comical. I might try to draw this little guy. He might make a super hero.

Nah. Flies are gross.
