Real-Life Infiltrates the Romance Comics!

Big dreams for romance
character, Debbie Williams!

But, alas! Those aspirations of
winning an Oscar came true!

Panels from the DC story, "First Prize.. Heartbreak!" which appeared in Young Love #61 (May/June 1967). Have a wonderful weekend, and if you are watching the 84th Annual Academy Awards tomorrow evening -- enjoy!

  3. Is that Bob Hope, who had his own comic at DC, making a guest-appearance in Young Love?

  4. Yup, and according to the Grand Comics Database, Ava Gardner and David McCallum were in there too.

    I love this Gene Colan art, Jacque.

  5. Hi Martin,

    The art on this story is not by Gene Colan. I'm not certain who the artist is, perhaps John Rosenberger.
