From tears to soda fountains, from mobsters to pretty ingénues in freshly pressed dresses, the stories of love and betrayal in Young Romance 2 will prompt you to grab a tissue box or swoon in delight. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby's sensational romance comics continue in this sequel to Fantagraphics' critical hit, Young Romance. This volume includes stories about women from all walks of life — such as the French widow in "War Bride" or the recently released prisoner in "Unwanted." Simon and Kirby invented the romance comics genre and explored all the flirtations, dalliances, and passions of the young men and women who populated their stories. Mothers, lock up your daughters (and yourselves) before you both get swept away by the sheer delirium that these pages induced so long ago.
