    Truer Than True Romance TPB (2001 Watson-Guptill) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Written by Jeanne Martinet. The search for true love is not what is used to be. In the old days, Girl Met Boy, Girl lost Boy, then Girl got Boy back. But the modern world of dating often goes something more like this: Girl meets Boy, Girl finds out Boy is Gay, Girl meets another Boy, Girl finds out Boy is married, Girl gets therapy. In Truer than True Romances, humorist Jeanne Martinet brings together her hilarious, piercing observations of the modern pursuit of love with a gem of American pop culture, the romance comic book of the 1940's to 1970's. Raiding the vaults of DC Comics like a starry-eyed romance-ologist, Martinet has created all-new tales of betrayal and heartbreak through all-new dialogue and captions, while still maintaining the integrity of the original classic artwork. Softcover, 8-in. x 10-in., 112 pages, full color. Cover price $19.95.
