Friday (Un)Favorites - Romance Comic Book Cover Fails!
If anyone loves romance comics and is willing to stick up for them, it's me. Once in a while, though, there is a cover that is so ridiculous that I just can't help but chuckle. Chalk it up to a rushed schedule for the artist or simply a creative idea gone astray, these five covers are pretty nuts and be counted among some of the covers I like the least!
This first one by Jay Scott Pike is crazy! That kid's chompers! They'll get ya!
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!
Nothing says romance like severed torsos in matching sweaters!
Holy mouthful of mustache, Batman!
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!
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!
