    On an unrelated note, this one seems like a pretty risqué cover page for a young girls romance comic back in that time period.

    • Yup. A big risqué. But pre-code romance comics were more on the edge than a lot of people realize—although on the first page (and especially on the covers) they often hinted at being more risqué than the actual story warranted.
