1970s Danish Romance Comics
A few weeks ago I came across a small stash of 1970s Danish romance comics in a used bookshop, and I just had to share them with you! Though American romance comics will always be #1 in my heart, stumbling upon these was pretty exciting! Titles I found include, Amor, Starlet, Love, and Jackie. If you are familiar with British romance comics, you will notice that some of these (not sure if all) are just the British comics translated to Danish. Though most of these digest-type romance comics are comprised primarily of one story, they do contain much of the same filler material that make the American romance comics so fun -- house ads, advice columns, recipes, and fashion tips.
The illustrated covers of Amor really caught my eye!
Just a few examples of the black and white interiors from the other issues I picked up...
Pretty cool, huh? Not sure if my Danish will get to the level anytime soon so that I can actually read them, but the gorgeous covers and illustrations were enough to persuade me to dish out a few Danish Kroner to add them to my collection!
