Popular Teen-Agers Secrets of Love 15, 1953

Another weird/beautiful romance cover by L.B. Cole. The dialogue on this one is pretty funny, but that's not really a surprise. These old romance comics were almost always totally over-the-top! The snowy weather is rather unusual for a romance cover, but produces a very dramatic effect. The first time I saw this comic it didn't really appeal to me, but over time I've come to enjoy it more and more!

One thing I've got to point out is the somewhat awkward composition; is the girl sitting in the front seat? The back seat? Is her neck dislocated? I mean, I know those old cars were nice and big, good for "gettin' it on", but something still doesn't really look right!
