HAIRPULLER!

Yeesh. Here's a doozy... FIRST ROMANCE #13 (May 1952, Home Comics):


Holy mackeral, that guy's a bit agressive, isn't he? HE'S PULLING HER HAIR! (What is up with these '50s bad guys and their hair-pulling?) Whatta man. Not cool, dude. Pepper spray's too good for him. I find that roughing up your date can lead to negative feelings and perhaps even some well-deserved jail time. Heck, I want to pop him one. Luckily Lancelot of the Porch is coming to her rescue...

she'll probably keep dating the mean guy though...lancelot was too sensitive...or maybe hes selling her hair strengthening formula and demonstrating how good it works...but in the car? have to give this one a look inside

That's a nice porch. I love the lanterns. We've got cool lanterns like that on the front of our house.

Bad guy to girl after she sprays him with pepper spray:
"I've built up an immunity!"
He just looks to me like he has a lot of experience with the hair-pulling thing...

Wow, an immunity to pepper spray. So Neanderthals CAN evolve!

Does Lancelot of the Porch look slightly...lopsided to anyone else? Like he was made out of painted cardboard for one of those displays at a bookstore?

I can already imagine the display.
DISCOVER THE WORLD OF FIRST ROMANCE: TRUE LOVE STORIES with these comic-book stories:
TOO WILD TO LOVE
LANCELOT OF THE PORCH MEETS LADY HAIRGETSPULLEDALOT
and many more.
Pepper spray included.
Just an idea. Fame and fortune, here I come!

Hey, where's smileygirl? Isn't she supposed to critique these? Somebody go get her.

I'll wait here.

I really think that I can reach real fame by resurrecting romance comics. A romance comic by someone who despises romance comics.
I'll redo "Too Wild to Love" with a modern flourish. This time I'll get the Gico commercial neanderthals to do the bad guy.
