NEGRO ROMANCE "Love's Decoy"

Happy Valentine's Day to all!
To celebrate, here's the last tale from Fawcett's incredibly hard-to-find Negro Romance #2 (1950)!
Fascinatingly, except for skin color, this could be a tale in ANY romance comic of the period, which makes sense, since writer Roy Ald was also the editor (and occasional writer) of the Fawcett romance comics line including Sweethearts, Love Memories, Romantic Western, Love Mystery, and True Confidences, so he knew his stuff.
Artist Alvin Hollingsworth was one of the few Black comic artists of the 1940s-1950s, illustrating every genre from Westerns to horror to sci-fi to romance.Like many Golden Age comics artists, he went on to do commercial art as well as becoming a noted fine art painter with numerous gallery exhibitions.

Next week:
We haven't decided yet what it'll be, but we can guarantee that...
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Oh, you've heard that, eh?)
And now a word from out sponsor...
featuring the cover art from all four HTF issues
on kool kollectibles!
