Heart Throbs vol. 1 #41 – One of the earliest DC romance comics to feature the Comics Code Authority seal on the cover.

Young Love vol. 1 #113 – This giant-sized issue features the remarkably condescending “Mark…on the man’s side” advice column.

Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special #1 – Released in 2013, this one-shot anthology features romance comic – style stories starring the heroes and love interests of the New 52 DC Universe.

Superman’s Girl Friend, Lois Lane vol. 1 – Early stories in this Lois Lane solo series were centred on her romantic interest in Superman, often with her competing for his affections with Lana Lang.

Young Romance vol. 1 #189 – The Doctor’s first-ever romance comic, featuring stories and a quiz to score how independent a woman you are.
