Sappy Benday Romance

I avoided these like the plague as a kid, sifting through stacks of old comics at my uncle's antique store. Now I kinda dig the bland-yet-breathless Lichtenstein quality of these old romance comics.

yay hecks kitchen! it's about time jennymiller's tireless dedication to all things romance, kittens and beer were appreciated. (the comics are way cool too -- thanks for the link)

chinese_fashion, were "old" and "romance" and "comics" supposed to be links to three different pages?

Not to nitpick, but it's Lichtenstein who appropriated the quality, not the other way around; masterfully, of course.

Yes, yes they were. My mistake.
