It's Baaaaaaaaack....

Since I feel like taking a 'nother communal field trip down to comic book history, I give thee a few pages I scanned off of a typical romance rag which may or may not have mindrinsed a few 14 year olds in its time.

Welp, let us snark.

No man is safe! As our possessive heroine Susan takes her boyfriend out for a leisurely bike ride, sure enough, Lorelei is on the man-hunt already!

I don't know if anyone noticed, but that redhead in 2nd panel was totally pushing her garbanzos.

Yyyyeah, sure you are.

Our narrator tries to convince us that their love is OMG true, but right now I'm thinking, How many people has gotten AIDS by now?

Love romance comics. I shouldn't, but they're such good crack.

I'm getting definite Betty vs. Veronica vibes, despite the hair colours being reversed.

Also, Susan is a desperate idiot if she's willing to marry a guy she knows has been cheating on Lorelei with her. Earth to Susan: if he did that with one steady girlfriend...

It's hell being a man. We're constantly being stolen from our current girlfriends by roving seductive harlots, against whom we have absolutely no defense.

I keep saying, dude. Leash laws are the answer. But no, no, it would be "inhumane." Pish and nonsense! What's inhumane is leaving you poor dears loose to fend for yourselves.

WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER OUR OWN PENISES

Seriously. That and the fact that he looks like her DAD were not helping my squick-factor.

It's "inhumane" depending on where you feel putting the collar would do the most good ...

"I think you'd like Colletta's!"

"Everything there is so light and feathery!"

"The decor is very minimalist!"

"No matter how crowded it is, it always looks like we're the only people there!"

"The service is very fast, because he's got so many assistants helping him!"

Surely there must be more?

Is this where you got your name?

I know that sounds like a silly question, but since we've moved over to InsaneJournal, you would have had the chance to change it ...

Yes, they are! :)

Lorelei is creepy. I mean, she's not that smooth: clearly, some kind of terrible mind-control powers are at work here.

Man, there are some fierce bitches out there...

It's actually a username I used for years, pretty much everywhere but jf and lj. I originally took it from the Heinrich Heine poem/Schumann Lied. But it's always fun to see siren characters, even in a non-literal context.

Heh, I forgot this was a romance comic and expected her to come back and kill them both like an EC horror story.... oops.

Wait, how do we know what her dad looks like?

Or are you just referring to his age? You have a valid point there, anyway. Guy looks like he's thirty something at least, whereas she looks like sixteen.

[identity profile] box_in_the_box.insanejournal.com 2009-04-21 08:22 pm (UTC)(link)
His age. She's talking like she's a high school teen, and he looks like a high school teacher.

That'd be awesome. Straight out of those send-ups.

That picture was taken five seconds before half of the DCU busted in to fight for their man.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. He just opened a law firm? How old is this girl? O___o

Technically old enough to give consent, one would assume, if he's a lawyer.

Is ... is that Romana as a vampire?

Nothing in the story is as good as that first splash image. Lorelei looks like a jaded French resistance chick.

[identity profile] arilou_skiff.insanejournal.com 2009-04-22 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
Oh yes, the japanese ones are even better because the sheer arsenal of "This is the emotion the characters are feeling" is so much larger. But these western ones are cool as well. We need more romance comics in the world!

Yeah, School Days taught us that shit never ends well.

[identity profile] arilou_skiff.insanejournal.com 2009-04-22 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
I was just reminded of School Days.

So... Yeah, same thing.

[identity profile] arilou_skiff.insanejournal.com 2009-04-22 01:31 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, same thought as well.

[identity profile] magnetic_regina.insanejournal.com 2009-04-22 09:44 am (UTC)(link)
I expected there to be some veiled reference to Lorelei having looser morales and that's why all the boys liked her.

"My named isn't Jane"?

How the hell did that get by the copy editors?

[identity profile] noahbrand.insanejournal.com 2009-04-23 07:51 am (UTC)(link)
It's a little something called "putting out".

Worked basically like mind control back then, yeah.
