Description

"Deranged genius, a wildly entertaining collection!" --Wired Magazine Your Valentine likes it hardcover... here's the must-give book for them (or just get it for your depraved self)! Weird Love collects the first three issues of the so-bad-it's-good comic book that is the buzz of geekdom! Plus, a raging bonus showcase of the most bizarro and sexy romance comic book covers! Revealing introduction by the Craig Yoe and Clizia Gussoni who 13th Dimension calls, "The Masters and Johnson of comics!" These vintage stories will blow your mind: "I Fell for a Commie!", "Love of a Lunatic!", "Yes, I was an Escort Girl!", "Love, Honor and Swing, Baby!", Gangster's Girl", "Too Fat to Frug!"... and MORE! "Some of the, yes, weirdest comics ever produced were the "true love'' and "young romance'' comics of the 1950s and '60s. Enter Yoe and wife Gussoni who have restored some of the most bizarre tales in the THE MUST-READ REPRINT BOOK OF THE YEAR, Weird Love."-USA Today "The THOROUGHLY ENTERTAINING quality of what a veneral disease film might have been like had it been written and directed by Ed Wood. It's great news that these comics will soon be collected in a lovely hardback volume."-Pop Cult
