When Heartbreak Hits... Read a Romance Comic!
Yesterday I caught up with Jenny (the artist for How to Go Steady) to touch base about our Kickstarter campaign. She let me know it had been a rough couple of days because the guy she'd been seeing for a while dumped her for another girl. Ugh! I hate that for her! It totally sucks to be dumped, especially for someone else but I reassured her that it isn't the end -- it's the beginning!
Jenny joked that she needs to follow the advice in the book to bounce back and well, I couldn't agree more! In light of this, let's take a look at a few pieces of advice from romance comics that you'll find in How to Go Steady, shall we?
It never ceases to amaze me that there was a whole genre of comic books that were not only entertaining but instructional as well. Certainly, not all of the advice was stellar, but so much of it continues to be timeless and useful.
You'll find all this advice and much more in How to Go Steady: Timeless Dating Advice, Wisdom, and Lessons from Vintage Romance Comics. If you'd like to see this book become a reality (and get yourself a copy in the process) visit our Kickstarter campaign!
Take Me to the Kickstarter!
