When you play at love, you may get played...
...as this never-reprinted sob-story from Mikeross' Heart & Soul #1 (1954) proves.
The writer is unknown.
The team of Andru & Esposito worked on numerous projects, including a long run on Wonder Woman in the 1960s.
They also had their own comics company in the early 1950s called MikeRoss Publications which published only four titles, three of which were romance comics!
You can see other tales from the same title, Heart & Soul, that this story appeared in, HERE, HERE, and HERE!
