Rita Phillips, a girl from the "wrong side of the tracks" is engaged to upper-crust Doctor Greg Marsh.
But Rita's sleazy former paramour (and employer), nightclub owner Ray Silva has decided to try to reclaim the woman he still desires...
Note the sales figures at the bottom of the page.
Secret Hearts was selling over 200,000 copies per issue!
Today, only three to five comics (out of a couple of hundred) break the 200,000 copy level on a consistant basis.
Comics in 2015 average 50,000 per issue...or less!
(Secret Hearts was considered a middle to lower-selling title in 1967!)
How times have changed...
Be back next month as we continue romance comics' longest-running soap opera!
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?)
This chapter of "Reach for Happiness" from Secret Hearts #118 (1967) was written by Jack Miller, with layouts and pencils by several different people including Jay Scott Pike, John Rosenberger, Jim Mooney, Ross Andru, and Gene Colan with primary inks by Jim Mooney and additional inks by a couple of others I can't identify right off.
And now a word from out sponsor...
