Weird Love issue 20 continues the fragrant flow of reprinted romance stories from the 50’s and 60’s. Purple prose, mauve dresses, ruby red roses and all.

Editors Clizia Gussoni and Craig Yoe present carefully chosen tales of woe and wonder in each issue, and this one is no exception.

There’s ” I Love The Man I Hated”, where the lovelorn Paula passes away tragically, and her friend Wanda takes comfort in the arms of the man who… oh, I just can’t tell you more!

1950’s bachelors, what about choosing the perfect wife? Girls, what clothes will make you most desirable so you can catch that man? Can you trust Hollywood leading men? And will your man understand when you’ve been hospitalized with a nervous breakdown?

If this is your cup of tea, you’ll find lots of amusing and astonishing stories of weirdness in this issue of Weird Love.

Oh, and art by John Buscema, Vince Colletta and others!
