Falling in Love #4

Lost love has never been particularly romantic to me. Keep that in mind when I tell you the I found the story of Abelard and Heloise out of place in Dc's Falling in Love. Falling in Love normally sports melodramatic plots, happing endings, and female POVs (there are exceptions). Tragic love doesn't seem to eve play in to the plots in the end, so the two page side story in an oddity to me.
This comics start in 1955, but issue #4 is dated Apil 1956. It ran 143 issues, ending in November 1973. I meant to post from #1, but the collector in me can't seem to put it on the scanner. So, let's pretend #4, is golden age!...Please? Come on I have no romance comics up at all...
Check out Mike's Amazing World of DC Comics-DC Reprint Guide for more on Falling in Love reprints. Information on this comics is scare, but dccomics40 has more coverage on individual issues. For more on the history of the story see Abelard and Heloise.
