Fashion Files - Dates 'N' Mates!

The weather has been gloriously fall-like lately, and in honor of the weather getting cooler please enjoy these fashions drawn by Jay Scott Pike from Young Romance #157 (December 1968/January 1969). I know it is not this cool out yet, but one can dream!

"Yep -- your gramps was a swinger!"

That's all for me folks! I am going on vacation to see some family for the holiday weekend. I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day! See you next week!


  1. Jacque - here are a few romance house ads you might find interesting. Feel free to add them to your blog if you like.

    Girls’ Love Stories 1 (Aug-Sep 1949)- DC’s first romance title: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v328/Osgood39/GirlsLove1Aug-Sep1949.jpg

    Girl’s Love Stories 43/Girls’ Romances 41 (Sep-Oct 1956) – good sample of 50s romance ad:

    Secret Hearts 110 (Mar 1966) – “Reach for Happiness” – the start of DC’s longest running romance serial:

    Heart Throbs 102 (Jun-Jul 1966) “3 Girls..Their Lives..Their Loves” – the start of DC’s other long-running romance serial:

    Girl’s Romances 135 (Sep 1968) – melodramic late 60s ad:

    Girls’ Love Stories 138 (Oct 1968) – catchy ad with rare Infantino romance cover:

    Wonder Woman 181 (Mar-Apr 1969) – interesting bit of cross-genre marketing – promoting the “mod” Diana Prince Wonder Woman to the romance readership:

    I also took the liberty of posting the "Marc" column into the long-running DC house ad thread you can find over here:

    Take care, and thanks again!

  2. Osgood! Wow, thanks for all those great links!!! I have a few of those, but a couple I had never seen before. I just might use them here and there, so thanks again! I am always excited to meet other people out there that enjoy romance comics as much as I do!!!

  3. This is an awesome site! You can't explain to someone why stuff like this is fantastic...nice to see there's a place on the net for it.

  4. Glad to see you are enjoying the site! :)
