From the people that bring you the acclaimed Haunted Horror comic comes a horror like no other... WEIRD Love! WEIRD Love presents the most sexy, bizarro, sick, twisted, politically incorrect, kinky "romance" comics of the 1950s and beyond. In this OMG-I-Can't-Believe-This! first ish, you are going to be astonished to read luridly illustrated pulp comics fiction like "Love of a Lunatic," "I Fell for a Commie," "The Taming of the Brute," the wacko "You Also Snore, Darling," and more! This collector's edition which begins the WEIRD Love series "ends" with a pre-code comics ode to the female derrier(!). No wonder the censors wanted this stuff banned! Sure to be a must-have big-buzz comic-and it's bargain-priced!

    It does make you think that Dr Fredrick Wertham should have targeted the Romance comics instead of the Horror ones though. The ideas in Weird Love are *much* more likely to corrupt and rot the brains of impressionable youths! Read Full Review

    Overall Im giving the comic a high recommendation with the caveat that this isn't a good comic, its simply a fun comic and if you want to take a trip back in time, then pick up, Weird Love #1 tomorrow. It's on my pull list. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Ashley Victoria Robinson May 21, 2014

    Weird #1 is for the type of people who enjoy watching Plan 9 From Outer Space and/or The Room repeatedly, for those who find joy in times past and the products that came out of them of potentially questionable quality. At $3.99 the 40+ pages are a steal and certain to make you laugh. So, why not? Read Full Review

    Florida Geek Scene - Brian Reed Jun 4, 2014

    Strangely enough, the things I found most objectionable about Weird Love were the harshly judgmental words used across the cover. “OMG, kinky, sick, bizarro” is displayed loud and proud, but nothing's all that kinky, and I can't get on board with calling any one's lifestyle sick or bizarre. But cover aside, this is an interesting read, as long as you understand we're supposed to have evolved past this way of thinking. It's really not ok to try to knock some sense into your lover… Read Full Review

    Weird Love is something that, after you read it and despite yourself, you will think about and remember. We all have an inner romantic.. and sometimes it's weird. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Wesley Messer May 13, 2014

    I found myself having more fun with this compilation than I imagined; on first glance I wasn't quite sure what to say. I appreciate old comics and seeing stories like this appear in print is always great to see.Weird Love won't be for everyone, some people out there aren't going to know what to make of this. Far and away Weird Love is worth reading, maybe not to everyone but the right audience will dig this collection of strange love stories. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 14, 2014

    Again it's interesting. I would love to see a real crack at the romance genre attempted again since the last time was Mark Millar's Trouble and that just made Peter Parker's family a bunch of swingers. As for this reprint, I was intrigued by it more than anything. I don't know if I would pick up other issues, but this one was entertaining-ish. Read Full Review
