The forgotten Warren magazine...

While vamping young guys with Vampirella and creeping us out with Uncle Creepy, publisher Jim Warren also published three issues of TEEN LOVE STORIES, a magazine aimed at girls. The comic strips the magazine used were, quoting from THE WARREN COMPANION (2001), "comprise[d of] . . . reprints from British romance comics published by Fleetway. The long strips in each issue were re-sized reprintings of strips from either of their digest-sized Picture Library Titles: True Life Library or Love Story Library." . . . Sellectiones Illustrada [sic]* provided most of the artwork for Fleetway's romance line, though these reprintings predate their formal publishing relationship with Warren by several years. Jim Warren obtained the strips directly from Fleetway . . ."

*Actually spelled Selecciones Ilustradas.

This is TEEN LOVE STORIES #1, 1967.
