What a gorgeous copy! Grade doesn’t matter to me when I am buying as long as the main imagery is clear, but when I am looking at high grades, they are thrilling!

This should be listed in Overstreet as "Classic serial killer cover; classic headlights cover; and classic decapitation cover".

A little later than silver but a nice psychedelic cover and a double cover at that.

Some silver, one or two may be considered BA. All from Harley today at SDCC.

How about some late period Love Romances:

I’m a huge fan of Kirby, but his Marvel romance stories can’t hold a candle to the GA books with Joe Simon. They look as if he was doing not much more than layouts but what really kills them for me are the stories, which i assume were mostly Stan Lee synopses. The plots are very formulaic, simple and aimed towards younger readers, whereas the GA books had longer, meatier stories with a bit more realism, or at least B-movie realism.

Thanks for posting. I did not realize this title ran until 1963! Never seen any of the later ones.
