Comic of the Week #65

Romantic Story #92 (1968). Cover art: Unknown -- The Best UNDERWATER Comic Book Covers -  A collection of some of the top underwater comic book covers ever created.

Comic of the Week has been on a long hiatus but I wanted to bring it back since I've been reading graphic novels and comics again. Every week I'm going to showcase a comic or GN cover- could be old, could be new- and share a few thoughts on why I think it's special. Do you like what I picked out? Let me know in the comments, and as always, if you have a favorite cover or piece of comic art, let me know! 

This week is Romantic Story #92. 

This one kills me. Watch out for the shark!!! 


  1. Hahaha! "One kiss before dying" is killing me. Why are they making out underwater? How are they even breathing? Kissing requires air, and the last time I checked, humans didn't have gills. Also, there's a shark and waves crashing pretty intensely against rocks. This entire situation is screaming, "BAD IDEA!" ;)

  2. That doesn't seem very romantic lol And are they spoiling the whole plot with the artwork and title or is there a TWIST???

  3. lol i thought he was strangling her underwater, the shark bit kind of passed me by at first... Either way, it's a very unusual romance LOL

  4. Such a great cover! I can imagine the music from Jaws playing in the background. :D

  5. What a weird cover. How are they getting air. Oh wait maybe they want their eyes closed so the don't see the shark coming?
