    Lonely Hearts Ep. 17: Kill Your Boyfriend - Romance in the 90s

    Lonely Hearts Ep. 17: Kill Your Boyfriend - Romance in the 90s

    After love in the 80s, love in the 90s, with Grant Morrison's Kill Your Boyfriend as the prototypical romance comic of the era. What made romance so hard in that decade, and why were we so keen on mixing it with crime stories? And in Romance Comics Theatre, we go back in time to the early 50s for an altogether different criminal love story, "I Was a Border Racket Girl!" Which story feels most dated? You make the call!

    Lonely Hearts Ep. 14: Reading Patsy

    We're back from hiatus! Just Siskoid and Furn to ease ourselves in, in this sequel to TWO past episodes. In the main part, the boys finally read the Patsy Walker comic they bought back in episode 7, then in the Male Bag, we follow-up on episode 13, in which we asked listeners to rewrite the classic romance story "Jilted" and deliver a Romance Comics Theater based on the network's good buddy Anj's submission!

    Lonely Hearts Ep. 13: Marvel Romance Redux

    Lonely Hearts Ep. 13: Marvel Romance Redux

    What happens when you take a vintage romance story and replace all the dialog with modern jokes? That's What 2006's Marvel Romance Redux was all about. The guys take a look at 1969's "Jilted" by Stan Lee(?), Don Heck and John Romita, and then Redux's "Love Me, Love my Clone!". Same art, different story, and each available in the Romance Comics Theater experience!

Mike Arsenault ,

A hidden gem in a very cluttered comic podcast landscape...

This might be the answer to your question of "All of these comics pdcasts are sounding the same, I NEED SOMETHING NEW!" The show deals with a sub-genre of comics that don't get enough love (see what I did there), the romance comic in all of its forms. They look at a different sub-genre of romance comics every episode and treat the material with reverance and humour. If that wasn't enough to pique your interest, each episode contains a dramatic radio play based on one of the comics from the hosts' large collection of material. This is totally worth checking out, take a risk... on LOVE.
