Mystifyingly absorbing and entertaining vignettes of some truly weird loves indeed. I’ve had many an incredulous laugh over these satisfyingly pulpy bits. —Reva— From Reva's Picks
Michelle Nolan, writer of the groundbreaking book "Love on the Racks: A History of American Romance Comics," provides a fascinating introduction to "Weird Love: That’s The Way I Like It!," the second sleazy and stupefying volume in the series that "Wired" magazine calls "deranged genius!"
You’ll love, you’ll hate these lurid stories: "Too Fat to Frug," "Men You Shouldn’t Marry," "Leader of the Pack," "Love Slaves," "Stay Away From Married Men," "Trailer Park Girl: Flirtation on Wheels," "Mail-Order Marriage," "Thrill Crazy!," and other classics of Good Girl Art!
There are first-person pulp confessionals like "I Was a Border Racket Girl," "I Was Too Beautiful," "I Was a Waterfront Girl," "I Was a Child Bride," "I Married a Monster," and much more cringe-worthy, laugh-riot comic book kitsch!
