Too Many Boy Friends

Kathy wasn't a romance comics, but it did often have a romantic comedy based plots. The text story below is a bit more serous than the normal Kathy fair, but it fits well for the Season of Love!

From Kathy 11

This story is by Mickey Marks. From what I can piece together he/she spent most of their comics writing career most of his writing for on comedy features. He also worked on on issues of Blue Bolt (Novelty Press) as "Mickey Klar Marks" You can some of the comics he/she wrote for here. Mostly though he embraced the 'funny animal' genre.

Man-Huntin' Minne

1950s comics had little love for women. I mean, look at poor Lois Lane (although she gotten no respect since the 1930s).

Man-Huntin' Minne is right up there with Knothead Nellie in the world of Dizzy Dames. Minnie's strip just last longer. 

From Dizzy Dames #2 (1952)
