Honeymoon Romances and Confessions of Love are difficult to find.

Such a wild cover. A "one that got away" for me. A few years back, I was outbid on copy, and of course would now happily pay twice the winning bid.

Great cover!  And the story title, "Should Brides be Virgins?" is awesome!  I'd love to read that!

Well, this book has ZERO information entered in GCD. They have info on issues #2 and #3 but nothing on #1. It's a Superior Canadian Reprint, but still cool as hell! Came across it at a local small show this past weekend

Campus Romances #1 (Superior)

Got this back today...CGC was kind enough to add the label note, a bit more clear than the vague citation the book has in the OPG currently.  They were pretty close to the wording I suggested but went with 'inspiration' rather than 'source' as I had asked...semantics.

the label is too small to read for me :sorry:

I was happy to knock this #2 off my want list last week. A nicely done two issue title by Mikeross Publications (Mike Esposito and Ross Andru).

Obviously not high grade, but these were tough enough to find that I'm sure they'll end up being keepers. I think it was  Mr.B. that posted some nice copies a couple years ago.

Very cool.  I've never seen that copy before.  The ice on the window, water dripping off the dude and records (LP) laying on the floor.  Instant classic.

 Picture worth a thousand words indeed.  Disheveled guy begging negligee babe in 5E who is downing vodkas and listening to bluesy jazz on a cold night.  Oh man I feel the pain.  Every piece of art chosen to show has a purpose.
