Verily, things doth not be copacetic in Verona!
Pray, let us behold the love-smitten swain and the lovely object of his affections ...
Verily, ye didn't know Shakespeare invented the soap opera, dids't thou?
This it not the Classics Illustrated version, but part of the Famous Authors Illustrated series that competed with CI for the "comic book adaptation of classics" market for several years.
The Famous Authors line was doing pretty well, so Classics did what any business would do when faced by a successful competitor...they eliminated the competiton by buying the company!
This particular edition, from Famous Authors Illustrated #10 (1950), was adapted by St John romance comics scribe Dana Dutch and illustrated by longtime CI contributor H C Kiefer!
Next week:
You'll Cry Your Eyes Out if You Miss It!
(Please don't give away the ending!)

And now a word from out sponsor...
