Title

Secret Hearts, no. 32

Description

Secret Hearts was published by National Comics, better known today as DC Comics, through its Arleigh romance imprint. As Michelle Nolan remarks, "National Comics is well respected by romance collectors for being one of the slickest purveyors of love during the post-Comics Code era, even though many 1950s and early 1960s stories tend to be merely mild fantasies" (79). In this issue, that is certainly true, as each story concludes with a couple's loving embrace. Notably, this comic includes an prose feature, "Ann Martin, Counselor-at-Love," in which readers write in for advice on romance-related topics, from prompting a marriage proposal from a reluctant boyfriend to choosing the right kind of photograph for a wedding announcement.
