Ad for Love Stories from Young Love #101 (November 1972)

Here on Sequential Crush, I have covered almost all of the DC romance titles of the '60s and '70s. Almost. The only one that I haven't delved into is Love Stories, a title that grew out of and continued where Heart Throbs left off. Join me Wednesday evening as I review the first issue in a Romance Under the Covers post. The remaining five issues (the title only ran for six) will be highlighted in future posts.

The results of the latest poll are in! For the most part, the 20 readers who voted seem to enjoy the romance comics produced by Charlton! By the numbers...

  • 2 voters felt that Charlton romance comics were superior to DC and Marvel
  • 1 voter felt that Charlton romances were atrocious
  • The majority of voters (9) felt that Charltons were low quality, but fun nonetheless
  • 8 felt that the romance comics Charlton produced were pretty darn good!

Thanks for voting everyone! Stay tuned for another poll in the future, or until I think of another question -- whichever comes first!
