Enjoy some "Romance in Advertising" this weekend on both the TV screen and in print.
With the return of AMC's Mad Men tomorrow night after an eighteen months hiatus, what better way to commemorate the occasion than a line of 60s esque romance comic of the critically acclaimed TV series?
Thanks to artist Jeremy Nguyen, who is a self-confessed fan of the TV series, we get a sneak preview at what a faux line of romance comic books set in the same era would have been like.
In the words of the artist himself:
Mad Men will be here in less than a week! And it has been off the air for 18 months. Man, am I glad to see it return. I’m a huge fan of the show, the time period, and wanted to somehow celebrate how entertained I am by the series. I have a love for the golden age of comics. Sometimes I wish I was a freelance comic book artist in that era, when comics were new, exciting, and uniquely part of being American. Romance comics were in fact hugely popular in those days, easily surpassing sales of superhero comics. And at some point, they dropped off, were replaced by horror, war, and other genres eventually.
