Archie Comics' other romances
After Joe Simon and Jack Kirby pioneered romance comics in the late 1940s, every other publisher quickly jumped on the bandwagon. Archie Comics was no exception. Ultimately, it didn't catch on and Archie Comics decided to stick to publishing adventures Archie Andrews, his supporting cast and the variety of "teen-age" imitators that tried to replicate the formula that made the original so successful.
Now, when it comes to finding romance comics with objectionable undertones, you really can't go wrong. At best, you'll find something mildly cringe-inducing. At worst, you'll find something like "Cottage of Love." It's hardly the most cringe-inducing romance comic ever published, but good God...
The story originally appeared in Darling Love #8. Writer and artist unknown.
And, as a bonus, an advice column and a celebrity gossip column from the same issue.
