SECRET HEARTS "What About Some Love for Me?"

How many of us have been treated like doormats by our "friends"...
...even to the point where we'd actually help them steal the one we love?
I'll bet a lot of readers can identify with Katie...
We don't know how Jane reacted to this turn of events...nor do we care!
This never-reprinted, cover-featured tale from DC's Secret Hearts #109 (1966) was penciled by John Romita, inked by Bernard Sachs with several panels redrawn by Mike Sekowsky.
(Romita had just gone over to Marvel to take over as the artist on Daredevil, and shortly thereafter, Spider-Man!)
