If you're a LCS or con box hunter, keep an eye out for this one, the #2.  The #1 is cool too - but not as cool as this one.

Speaking of Dell - this is their only contribution to the romance genre.  The only major publisher to take a pass on the LOVE Craze that by 1950 had 1 out of 4 comics be romance.  Like the lost continent of Atlantis, they were.

It looks like Robert Peak or, more likely, someone aping his style.

Ron!  You'll get a kick out of this one.

Summer of Love 1967.  This book, 1968.  To me, it kicks off Charlton's romance Bronze Age, a little ahead of the guys in tights.

Gotta respect the Charlton Connecticut Crew, the only place weird Steve Ditko felt somewhat at home.

Pretty late to be called a GA book, but at least it's rare ... or, at any rate, nobody bothered to slab a copy before. :)

Won this raw on eBay from a former boardie, who graded it a 6.0.  But for $17 (including postage), I probably shouldn't complain. CGC missed crediting Cole on the label.
