Here's last night's pre-code romance recap: the only things left are True Love Problems and Advice Illustrated #'s 10 and 24. 

We will start with the last two romance books planned for this thread, and segue into GGA/teen humor, then a few Archie titles.

First up, in. GVG, is Thrilling Romances #9. I cannot identify the two models on the cover, but they look familiar. They are also on the cover of Love Experiences #33. Let's say $30 :news: NOW $20

Next, a very special Atlas romance, Love Tales #50. Special because it includes a signed Bill Everett story (only a handful of Everett romance work) that features a wild hair-pulling catfight. Al Hartley cover. Grading it VG due to seemingly needless tape on spine. Otherwise, it's flat bright and clean like a higher mid-grade book. $70 :news: NOW $50

Holy carp, Cav and Rick; both your "take's" on Hedy say posted two minutes ago, but Cav's appears first in the thread and in the order in which the notifications came in, so it's Cav by a nose! ^^ Cav on Hedy #49! Thank you both! (worship)

This one breaks my heart as its a technical Poor with a chunk out of the Will Bragg splash panel (see pic) but it's a cool late issue with a great cover. $10
