Whap! Pow! Splat! - The Guy Fights of Charlton Romance Comics!
The Charlton romance comics of the 1960s and '70s are noteworthy not only for their inherent wackiness, but for the sheer number of fights that take place between male characters. The DC and Marvel romances have the occasional fight, but not as often as the Charlton books. The panels with flying fists usually involve fantastic onomatopoeia, entertaining dialogue, and guys with unkempt hair. But why so much fighting, you ask? Well, for the ladies of course! Whether out of jealousy, defense, or to impress -- the guys of Charlton don't hold back. And though many of the ladies stand on by with clenched fists, it isn't unusual for them to get in the action with some fierce purse swinging!
