Maybe not quite rare but one of my favorite non-Baker romance covers.

Don't tell me things like this! Don't you have any compassion for the state of my bank account?! :insane:

 

I have compassion Tony. And I'm happy to write the obituary. "Here rests Tony's bank account...etc"

I thought there was one. I remember some months back, member KillKillKill began posting huge numbers of his -- mostly low-grade -- books. I don't know what happened to that thread or to him. Perhaps he changed his name? hm

KilIKillKill was a shill for a banned board member.

Was it luxx?

Also,hearing so much about it,does anyone have a picture of Negro Romance 4?

I'd love to see it..and maybe a request for LB Cole covers?

This is a niche of comics I have never really explored,and wow,I really am keen on it now.Thanks to everyone for opening my eyes to so many beautiful books.

Sidewalk Romance really knocks my socks off...seems so ominous..any interior shots :wishluck: ?Sorry to take up so much space gang,but thanks to all again for sharing this wonderful stuff.

EC romance issues are more scarce than a lot of people realize. This one, especially so. Heritage only has a single issue in their entire 12 year inclusive auction archives, and that one (a CGC 6.5) was an auction from just the past year.

 

Unlike most of the other EC titles, there never were Gaines File Copies of any of the romance comics, compounding their scarcity.

There was one up for auction not long ago. There is a debate as to whether the cover might be by Matt Baker and, if so, whether he drew himself as the man in the car.

Gaines's finest attempt to hoodwink the post office by claiming that this series was a continuation of the Moon Girl series. :D

Don't you folks ever sleep! :D

 

(I'm glad you don't. I get to wake up and see these great books.)
