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: Secret Hearts #107's "Heartbreak -- Take Me!"

As the artist of 70 issues of Marve's Tomb of Dracula, the legendary Gene Colan defined the look of the world's most famous vampire in comic books. Teamed with equally legendary writers like Archie Goodwin and Marv Wolfman, Colan drew a Dracula filled with equal parts demonic menace, villainous arrogance and all-too-human regret, and became one of the greatest horror artists in comics -- no mean feat, considering that he was also one of the greatest super-hero artists in comics.
