I don't think there has been a Thread on this Forum dedicated to the genre since the first few months when the CBCS Forum first launched. I'm sure that Thread is LONG since archived. Let's try this again shall we?

I'll kick it off with a series that's near and dear to my heart. 'Forbidden Love' by Quality pub. This series is touted as scarce, and is known for it's photo covers featuring gorgeous ladies. The first two issues are listed as classic covers by Overstreet. Unique designations for photo cover books.

Issue 3 has a cover featuring actress Janet Leigh (of 'Psycho') also the mom of Jamie Lee Curtis (of 'Halloween')

Issue 4 is arguably the toughest in the 4 issue run.

Let this one go a few years ago and regret it. Matt Baker cover and some early Nick Cardy art inside.

Still have this one if anyone is looking for this issue (1955 with a Vince Colletta cover).

Thin pickings in the romance department over here.

This is the Crippen "D" copy. It is one of the few that didn't have the handwritten code on the first page. A search of ha.com shows it is from that collection.

..This one has a weird slant, it's almost a hybrid of a Romance and a PCH comic

@michaelekrupp That is SPECTACULAR! Wow, thanks for sharing! Harvey Romance is underappreciated due to the warehouse find, a problem their Horror books seem to buck. I'd argue the interiors of the romance stuff in a lot of cases was way more controversial than their interiors on their Horror line.

Agreed! Too sweet! I always wanted a bound volume in my collection. One of these days...
