Full Hands, Empty Heart-John Rosenberger/Vince Colletta-1973

Who better to write and edit romance comics than DC's king of the WAR comics, Robert Kanigher? Here we have what is most likely the earliest example of an interracial romance in a mainstream comic book. Was there a backlash? Don't know? Anyone? It's rather melodramatic but this would have been heavy stuff at the time. It's quite nicely drawn by Rosenberger--who was in his element here--and the much-maligned Vinnie who was quite good at DC in the early '70s in my opinion.
