Description

From the publisher:

These vintage stories will blow your mind: "I Fell for a Commie!", "Love of a Lunatic!", "Yes, I was an Escort Girl!", "Love, Honor and Swing, Baby!", Gangster's Girl", "Too Fat for Love!"... and MORE!

Weird Love collects the first three issues of the so-bad-it's-good comic book that is the buzz of geekdom! Plus, a raging bonus showcase of the most bizarro and sexy romance comic book covers!

Art by Whitney Ogden, George Evans, Harry Lucey, Vince Colletta, and others.

"Some of the, yes, weirdest comics ever produced were the "true love'' and "young romance'' comics of the 1950s and '60s. Enter Yoe and wife Gussoni who have restored some of the most bizarre tales in the THE MUST-READ REPRINT BOOK OF THE YEAR, Weird Love." -USA Today

The Onion calls him the celebrated designer, The Library Journal, a comics guru. BoingBoing hails him a fine cartoonist and a comic book historian of the first water. Yoe was Creative Director/Vice President/ General Manager of Jim Henson's Muppets, and a Creative Director at Nickelodeon and Disney.
