DARLING ROMANCE "I Stole My Sister's Man"

It's time to get back to what this blog is really about...
...a story about a sleazy, sordid, and slutty sibling trying to steal her sister's guy!
(and it's from Archie Comics, no less!)
The success of Simon & Kirby's Young Romance unleashed a horde of romance comic imitators  including this decidedly non-Archie title from Archie Comics.
These pre-Comics Code series featured stories that rivaled the true confessions-style magazines for naughtiness and radio soap operas for ridiculous plot twists, as this tale from Darling Romance #1 (1949) demonstrates.
The unknown writer went under the pen-name "Mary Woods", but the art of Bill Fix (who did only romance stories during his short career in comics) is very distinctive...and he conveniently signed it!
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...
