Wotta dress!

WOW! Check out this great cover to SECRET HEARTS #123 (October 1967, DC Comics):

I just love that Pop-Art fashion! The cover art is reprinted as the splash page for the inside story "Reach For Happiness" (which is part 14 of an on-going soap-opera type story)... the word balloon on the inside image has the smooth fella sayin to black-and-white-triangle-stripe girl "Go on, say it -- my kiss disgusted you, didn't it?"

Now that's a pickup line that will get RESULTS!

One way or another.

There seems to be a surefire way to get me to post on here-- put a ridiculous romance comic cover on the site! ;-)

OK, first of all... again with the crazy neck position?? Granted, it's not as bad as those other ones, but her overall body position still looks far from comfortable.

Second of all, the dress! Hate to be a nit-picker, Bill, but I believe her dress is actually an example of Op Art rather than Pop Art. Op Art is the stuff that looks like optical illusions, while Pop Art is the Andy Warhol Campbell Soup cans kind of stuff. Either way, it is quite the striking piece of apparel. The guy sort of looks like he has his eyes closed-- I think it's because the dress is giving him a headache.

Third of all, what's with the Starlight Mint earring? I guess when this fellow goes for her neck like the guys in those other comics do, he can stop over at the earlobe and freshen his breath at the same time!

Fourth of all... the little comment at the top of the page... "Can a girl love a man who she believes is BENEATH her?" Oh my, that is quite a question! In fact, I dare not answer it here. But it certainly makes one think, doesn't it?

OK, I think I've said enough. Keep these cheesy romance covers comin', Bill! :-)

Hold those thoughts, smylegirl, I'm too sick and tired tonight to examine the finer points of this slab of paneliterature (new word!)... I'll get back to this soon.

And yes, you're right about the "OP-Art", not "POP Art" thing...
