Careful With That Axe, Eugene!

Man, they used to make romance comics that the guys could get into!!

For example, Vicki and Bob were going to get married...but:

A "cabin in the woods"? Oh, this bodes well!!

Well, a month later, Bob writes her and tells her that his health is restored, and he's ready to get married. So...

What could possibly go wrong?

It turns out that not Bob!!

Turns out that Dexter had escaped from a nearby asylum. But...what about Bob?!?

Not to worry...Bob actually survived!!

Don't do it!!

Holy crap!!

There's a reason only Captain America is allowed to do stunts like that, Dexter!

But of course, it is a romance comic, even if it is a particularly violent and gory one. So...


Of course, if I were Vicki, i would always have in the back of my mind..."Is this one really Bob?" Cue ominous music...

From Dear Lonely Hearts #6 (1954)

Nice Pink Floyd reference for all of us old enough to remember (and who actually bought these mags).
