Flaming Love 1, 1949
Published by Quality, this comic has cover and interior artwork by Bill Ward. Ward is probably most famous for being the creator of 'Good Girl' icon Torchy for Quality comics, but he is also very well known for the many cartoons he did for Playboy magazine.
This comic has some funny romance stories, most with a strong (and odd) cold war slant. The cover illustrates a scene from the first story in which evil Communists attempt to subvert a female westerner's true love by tempting her boyfriend with a bold east-block seductress! Great art and really funny stories make this a truly top-notch romance comic.
