This first one by Jay Scott Pike is crazy! That kid's chompers! They'll get ya!
Girls' Love Stories #179
At first glance, this cover isn't soooo bad -- but take a closer look. What are those goofy guys doing back there? I don't know about you, but I am also mystified by the brunette's crazy eyebrows and the fact that they are so high up on her forehead!
Our Love Story #11
Nothing says romance like severed torsos in matching sweaters!
Romantic Story #115
Holy mouthful of mustache, Batman!
Teen Confessions #85
It's not that wedgie-picking isn't attractive, but when first meeting your best friend's boyfriend whom you are planning to steal? Come on, Marcia!
Young Love #89
I hope you enjoyed my little tour of some romance comic book cover "fails!" If you did, let me know in the comments section which was your favorite! Next week I will post the winning cover's corresponding interior story!
