Our Love Story #12 - He Was Perfect - But I Lost Him

This issue has a reprint of the 1960 Kirby story from MY OWN ROMANCE #74, a quick 5 pager. The story starts off nicely, with a good splash page featuring the female lead and the usual teaser lead-off, and the first page shown here works nicely to quickly get the story started. After that it's a bit bland, with only three more pages the story is a bit straight-forward and a bit preachy, compared to the more complex, often byzantine plotting of the longer S&K romance stories.



Worth taking a look at, as one of the handful of romance stories that Kirby did at Marvel.

Inks are by Colletta.

Published 1971
