TENDER LOVE STORIES "Campus Crusader in Love"

Good Deeds or Good Loving...
That's the choice Christine has to make when her love of social justice and her love for her long-time friend come into conflict...
Unfortunately, none of the creatives were credited, so the writers and artists are regrettably, unknown.
However, the cover art is clearly inked (and probably penciled) by John Severin.
This cover-featured tale from Skywald's short-lived Tender Love Stories #3 (1971) was the only new story in the 52-page book!
The rest were reprints modified to update the clothing and hairstyles to then-current trends.
It was a common practice on romance titles from the mid-1960s until the genre died out in the mid-1970s.
We ran a "before-and-after" example of it HERE.
BTW, is this story looks familiar, it was the very first tale we ran on this blog back in 2011.
Unfortunately, the Dreaded Deadline Doom caught up with us as we prepared for vacation, so we decided to do a "re-presentation" rather than miss a week.
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 our sponsor...
You can own a kool komic collectible
(t-shirt, mug, tote bag, etc.)
embellished with the cover from this week's torrid tale... clicking HERE!
