We Have Already Seen...Anne Mason lying in a coffin after being attacked by strange beings...
...and now, the astounding conclusion to this tale from Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #3 by Jack Oleck and Don Heck!
Ah, a happy ending...

But not for Gothic Romances in comic book form!
This title, DC Comics' Dark Mansions of Forbidden Love, only lasted four issues before becoming Forbidden Tales of the Dark Mansion, a standard horror comic that ran ten more issues.
Its sister title, Sinister House of Secret Love suffered a similar fate, turning into Secrets of Sinister House, also after four issues.
Marvel Comics' attempt at a similar title was not a comic, but a b/w magazine with prose stories and spot illustrations called Gothic Tales of Love.
It died after three issues.
Charlton Comics' Haunted Love was the second-longest running series with ten titanic issues of weird love. 
We've presented a couple of stories from it HERE and HERE.
But the longest-lasting gothic romance comic book series was one based on a tv series.
Guess which one?

Next week:
More Gothic Romance 
as we present a multi-part, book-length tale of...
Dark Shadows!
 Barnabas Collins!
Victoria Winters!
Josette duPres!
Angelique Bouchard!
Willie Loomis!
Dr. Hoffmann!
and all the rest...
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Oh, you've heard that, eh?)
And now a word from our sponsor...
