The Great 2017 St. Valentine's Day Romance Comic Massacre
« on: February 13, 2017, 07:31:26 PM »

Welcome to the DCM/CB+ "Great 2017 St. Valentine's Day Romance Massacre or Romance'acre"

This month my fellow scanners & editors and I have cooked up an amazing 237 scans of public domain GA & SA romance comics! 50 books will from 1960 and later will be only for CB+. Also, the CB+ versions of some of the DCM safe books will include bonus pages of original art. So go check it out!

This would not have been possible without the amazing generosity of Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. (JVJ). A huge chunk of this flood is from the JVJ Collection, which unfortunately he no longer owns. This flood will put the JVJ Archive (maintained on CB+ at: http://tinyurl.com/zfgdcwd ) well past the 4000 books mark. Once again, a huge thanks to Jim!

There are also books from the Soothsayr, Titansfan & Kracalactaka collections.

Many thanks to Mark & Yoc, the respective admins, for helping facilitate this.

And thanks to all the scanners & editors who have made a dogged effort to bring you all these books: Rangerhouse, Soothsayr, Titansfan, Movielover, A Nonny Moose, Yoc, Dave Hayward, Comicwanderer, David Miles & Kracalactaka.

Now enjoy the latest goodies all up in a special Valentine's Day folder found here:

Nice bleeding variation on banner today.
A little shocking and funny at the same time!
