The East Valley Tribune has a short item
for Jack Kirby's 98th birthday about the romance comics he penned in the late 1940s and 50s. All done at a time when there was actually an effort made to write, publish and market romance stories on a serious basis, to women and even men. But by the end of the 60s, they'd largely been phased out and while there have been some here and there in recent decades, the mainstream certainly doesn't make much of an effort to market and promote them. Not that you could expect them to know how either, and the prices for monthly issues won't encourage anyone to check them out.
