Fox Giant 30, 1949

This is a very cool comic! Not the greatest cover art, but still semi-classic. I especially like the look in the eye of the woman on the cover. It's emblematic of the Fox Comics women - sexy (sometimes trashy!), aggressive and always up to NO good!

The Fox Giant series was a curious concept. Fox would take unsold comics from their warehouse, remove the covers and rebind the contents with a new cover. Each Giant contained 4 rebound comics and the contents were mostly random; even issues of the same Giant could have different contents. Another quirk was that Fox always started the first page of their comics on the inside of the front cover, so the coverless comics bound into a Giant were always incomplete, missing the first page. Still, for 25 cents it was probably a good deal at the time. These are pretty rare, and the contents are always an exciting surprise - sometimes just standard Fox romance but sometimes there's something better, like an issue of Jo-Jo or even Phantom Lady!

This comic contains 4 Fox romance titles: My Love Story 2, My Love Memoirs 9, My Past (Thrilling Confessions) 7 and My Love Life 7. Contents are decent - hysterically overwrought and totally dated - but not outstanding, pretty much in line with what the cover would lead you to expect.
