Finally! Fantagraphics and comiXology get busy and produce this happily-ever-maybe-never volume of romance comics called Young Romance by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Exciting, innovative, and beautifully drawn romance stories by two towering titans of the field (and originators of the genre).In such best-selling titles as Young Love and Real Western Romances, Simon and Kirby delighted a generation of girls and women (and probably a fair number of boys and men as well) with hundreds of charming and endlessly inventive stories of love and heartbreak. This never-before reprinted material painstakingly restored in full color and edited by Michel Gange. So get out your handkerchiefs and enjoy the trials, tribulations, tragedies and triumphs of Suzi, Marjorie, Annaliese, Toni, Kathy, Sari... and 15 other star-crossed young lovers from half a century ago.
Seperated into three glorious volumes each priced at $7.99, you'll like the protagonists love and LOVE their problems. Each volume is about 86-90 pages long of full-color beautifully restored classic comics.
"Simon and Kirby tried to bring as much excitement to primarily psychological and interpersonal goings-on as to punching and flying." -Hillary Brown, Paste Magazine
"Most of the 21 stories in this great new book collection [Young Romance] haven't been compiled before, and if you're not familiar with them, you're in for thrill after melodramatic thrill. My favorite: 'Norma, Queen of the Hot Dogs.'" - Michael Galucci, Cleveland Scene
