Design of the Week NEGRO ROMANCE

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...with Valentine's Day rapidly-approaching, here's a unique design for your loved one!
In the mid-1950s, with superheroes and horror stories all but eliminated from comics, other genres dominated!
Westerns, war, sci-fi, teen humor, and romance now filled the comics racks.
The big problem was finding a way to stand out from the crowd!
Fawcett (and Charlton, who bought a lot of Fawcett properties when they went out of business) were willing to take a crack at the untapped African-American teen/young adult audience.
Sadly, the book only ran four issues.
But, you can read the stories that appeared in this issue HERE!
Note: This design is the only comic art cover in the series (the rest were photo covers using models).
Besides being a kool retro romace cover, suitable as a Valentine's Day gift, it would also make an appropriate gift for someone celebrating Black History Month!
