*Girls’ Comics: D.C.Thomson’s pioneering romance weekly, Romeo, launched in 1957 to a rapturous reception from the love-starved audience, and spawned scores of imitators aimed at older teen girls and young housewives not yet disillusioned with domestic drudgery. With its stories of bright young career girls in exotic locales, it offered escapism to a generation, but was frequently discarded after reading, meaning that despite its substantial print runs, few copies survive today. Our acquisitions of Romeo in the past have ranged from a handful to a couple of dozen, but we have been extremely fortunate in gaining our largest selection of Romeo issues ever – approximately 200, from issue #5 in 1957 to 1970. The changing façade of the Battle of the Sexes is reflected in the front cover styles, flicking from one trend to another as the decades pass! Many special holiday issues are included in this stellar selection. For price and condition details, see our online catalogue.
