The Return of Bruce and Lisa!

 Comic book romance love stories DC Comics

Back in November, I introduced you to the contest "Can This Romance Be Saved?" It detailed the plight of Bruce -- a shy, concert-going introvert and Lisa -- an extroverted party girl. DC asked readers to write in and voice their opinions on whether the two should split or stay the course and get married.

Many of you Sequential Crush readers voiced your opinion in the comments and had some very sage advice for Lisa and Bruce. Want to see how your advice stacked up to the winners?

  The results of the contest appeared in  Girls' Love Stories  #171 (July 1972)

Winner of the contest, Barbi Smith of Brooklyn, New York won $10 dollars (approximately $51 today) for her mature answer -- not too shabby for a comic book contest! I have always wondered if and how many guys were reading romance comics, but judging from the name of the second-runner up, there was at least one!
