MY SECRET LIFE "Quicksand Romance"

Here's a preview of our big Valentine's Day project for 2015...
...a retrospective of the romance comics work of legendary "good girl" artist Wally Wood!
Best-known as a horror and sci-fi artist with a penchant for illustrating beautiful women, Wally Wood's early output had quite a bit of romance comics work, much of it not seen since first publication, like this story from Fox's My Secret Life #25 (1950).
BTW, the reason the first page is only black and magenta is that it's the inside cover of the comic.which was printed in only two of the four colors used on the front/back covers and interiors of books as a cost-saving measure.
(Most publishers just used black ink and no color on inside covers to save even more money!)
And, since it was done before the Comics Code Authority eliminated most adult-level content in comics after the juvenile delinquency scare of the 1950s, the subject matter was on the level of the b-movies of the era, often a bit hard-edged and tawdry.
Through January and February we'll be running a series of these never-reprinted tales taken directly from the original comics!
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...
