Love Hurts: The Gossamer Wedding Dress Prison

As we head towards Valentine’s Day, ComicsAlliance is offering up a daily tribute to love, as depicted in the somewhat dubious world of Romance Comics! Today’s entry: Our Love Story #29’s “When A Love Story Ends!”

Jean Thomas and Alan Weiss’s depiction of Tracy’s spiral into despair might seem a touch melodramatic, but keep in mind that her fiancee just broke up with her and told her that he never wanted to see her again over the phone the day before their wedding. You’d probably start cursing the diaphanous dungeon that was your whalebone corset, too.

It all works out though: After tearing off the dress and having a freakout in the sexiest lingerie that Code-approved romance comics had to offer in 1974, Tracy heads over to get answers, where she learns that Jack only broke off the relationship because he has a potentially fatal heart condition and didn’t want to make her suffer through being a young widow. So cheer up! Love conquers all!

Except, you know, for the part where the love of your life could die at any minute.
