♥ A little Easter Egg arrived at Sequential Crush last May, and so did the ever-so-fashionable belted sweater torn from the pages of real-life fashion magazines!
♥ The bitter tale, "Tomorrow is Too Late" demonstrated the deep and sometimes sorrowful emotions contained within the romance comics -- with great art to boot!
♥ An expose on green tights led us all to ponder the significance behind the color choice. Keep an eye out for a sequel sometime soon!
♥ Sink your teeth into romance comics a bit more with the downloadable pdf booklets, "Forgotten Romance - Artists of a Bygone Genre" and "The Look of Love - The Romantic Era of DC's Lois Lane, Supergirl and Wonder Woman."
♥ The 1960s and '70s romance comics were teeming with discourse of social issues such as the Women's Movement and disability awareness, stories which truly make history come alive!
♥ We saw that romance comic book characters don't just go to fancy restaurants and lounge on yachts all day long, sometimes they actually go back to their groovy pads!
♥ Last but not least, I had the opportunity to interview two very dynamic women -- Irene Vartanoff and Suzan Loeb! Hopefully this next year provides opportunities for more interviews with those involved with the romance comics!
The fun I have had posting on the romance comics and interacting with you readers during the past year is truly insurmountable. I sincerely hope to continue to bring the grooviest stories, artwork, and history of the 1960s and '70s romance genre to you for many years to come!!!
♥ Thank you for reading Sequential Crush!!! ♥
