Friday Favorites - You Should be Dancing!

Since 2009, I've had the pleasure of sharing my love for romance comics with all you fine folks here on the blog. I am happy to let you know that this spring I will be launching a brand spankin' new Sequential Crush site. Not only will there be blog posts (including full archives), there will be video posts, and special rotating exhibits. Get ready for more romance comic book goodness than you can shake a stick at!

Besides reflecting on the future direction of the blog, I've also been using the time since my Kickstarter campaign ended in July to figure out what is next for my book How to Go Steady: Timeless Dating Advice, Wisdom, and Lessons from Vintage Romance Comics. I tossed around the idea of running a second Kickstarter campaign but ultimately, I've decided to self-fund the completion of the book and publish it digitally and print on demand through Amazon.

I am SO excited where things are headed that it makes me want to do a happy dance. In that spirit, here are some of my favorite covers featuring dancing!
