Romantic Secrets 036 (Fawcett Nov 1952) unedited.

I have a raw scan.  For whatever reason DCM kept failing out at the upload point so if I added multiples - sorry!

It's a fragile book and I had to over-scan along the edges.  I'd rather have it uploaded now then have everyone wait for me to trim and edit it and fix the tears, tape and over-scanning.  I can do a cleaner and edited upload later unless someone beats me to it.

As the truckers say, "It'll get there when I get there."

Thanks very much LG!
Your file made it to us fine.  If you have any uploading problems in the future just send me a Private Message (click the word balloon under my avatar) and we can figure out another way to get it to us.

Your Fawcett is now up for reading.

Thanks!  My internet is powered by two drunk squirrels.  If it keeps happening, I'll ping you!

Today it's fine but my server was also upgraded and rebooted today so *shrug*.

We can give you a back-up Mediafire link to upload to if you ever find you can't do it to DCM directly.

Romantic Secrets 036 (Fawcett Nov 1952) edit submitted.

Border fix for consistent look, fix holes tears, stains or missing text.  I generally do not mess with the contrast or colors (unless I'm blending in a border).  I try to keep a light hand and will not get butt hurt if someone wants to improve on sections.

Love me some romance.

I appreciate the wanted comic list! It takes a lot of the work out of finding things to look for that intersects my interests in romance/war comics and archiving.

I also have True-to-Life Romances 007 (star accepted) but it's so fragile I'm trying to stabilize it (the paper)before I scan it.

We sure appreciate your efforts LG. 
And there is no rule a book can't be on the site more than once. 
Many of the oldest scans on DCM were made when hard drives were expensive and connection speeds very slow so scans were often small and heavily cropped.  Advertisements would sometimes be left out to conserve space.  If a scan is small we welcome new versions for any of those.

Good old trusty zip drives and the terror of someone picking up the land line...

Exactly.  Anyone old enough knows that horrible racket your modem made dialing up your ISP on a 56k modem.... and the agony of oh so slowly downloading even the smallest comic scan... I don't miss those days at all!
