Mod & Hippie 60's Romance Comics
I've never been into romance in any genre whether it be books, movies, or comics. The art on romance comics does intrigue me, though. There is typically a major melodrama playing out on the cover, truly the stuff of soap opera, complete with back-stabbing, cheating, and big comic book tears that look like they are out of a Roy Lichtenstein painting. What intrigued me about the set of 1960's comics I'm featuring is the 60's aesthetic. The bouffant hairdos; the neon, mod colors and clothes; and even a few hippies thrown in to really typify the era. The Woodstock comic is a great little historical piece. So, enjoy this handful of late 60's/early 70's romance comics.
