SOUL LOVE "Diary of the Disappointed Doll"

We presented one story from this never-published 1970s title last year...
...and here's another never-seen story,  also scanned and presented from the original art!
Written and penciled by Jack Kirby, inked by Tony DeZuniga.
Since the magazine was b/w, the art would be photostatted, then gray wash tones would be added as shown in this printed page from The ButterFly, a strip about the first Black superheroine (predating Storm of the X-Men) that appeared in the 1971 b/w magazine Hell-Rider.
You can read about her HERE.
Soul Love would have been the second romance comic oriented to a Black audience.
The first was the 1950s series Negro Romance, which we covered HERE.

UrbanWear with a "Black is Beautiful" flair!
Stand tall and proud with a Lichtenstein-style comic book image of lovers in a romantic clinch!
A Pop Art classic with a Black twist!


  1. Hello! I've just discovered your blog and I think it's just terrific. I had a couple questions: are your all over print romance comic t-shirts available for men? I'm a huge fan of silver and bronze age romance comics and I would buy one of those in a heartbeat.

    Also, are you on twitter?

    Again, great site. I'll be very busy reading your library of posts.

    1. Not on Twitter.
      I can offer one of the designs (Mod Love's "Hippest Girl" on a male big graphic t-shirt... but do do the others means redoing/extending the artwork since the dimensions for men's big graphic t-shirts are larger than the women's.
      I may do so in the future, but I can't do it right now.


Thanx for telling us how you feel!
