Slowly collecting a set of the I.W./Super Comics reprints and I finally found the last romance issue I needed. Some of these were very tough to find in any condition. The list may be incomplete, a couple of unknown variants have been found in the last few years, so if anyone has one that isn't shown, please share. :)

A bunch of really nice IW books fett. At least a few I haven't seen before.

The inside of the "book" on this Intimate Confessions #9 is L. B. Cole's art for True To Life Romances #4 but with all the colors changed and the Cole signature erased.

Yeah, that's definitely a cool book. I like "wild teens of the '50s" books.

A couple of cool Kinstler covers in there.

My understanding is the guy behind IW didn't bother asking permission or paying royalties; he just ripped off whatever he felt like. If I've got that wrong, I'd love to know the actual story.
