More Kubert -- "Love Came Second"

When Simon and Kirby launched Young Romance in 1947, they started a genre that rivalled the Golden Age of superheroes in popularity. It doesn't get much attention now but its impact was huge and it remained a major genre for almost thirty years.

If you've never read a romance comic, you could do worse than this example from St. John's Hollywood Confessions. The story is typical of the genre and the art is typical Kubert, which is to say, very good indeed.
