9780091885151: Truer Than True Romance: Classic Love Comics Retold

Martinet has updated DC Comics' classic romance strips with new dialogue, replacing the schmaltz of yesteryear with hilarious, piercing observations on the pursuit of love in the 21st century. Ten all-new knowing tales of love, betrayal and heartbreak exchange the simple sweetness of the originals for something more absurd and neurotic befitting the Bridget Jones generation. "My Heart said Yes, But My Therapist said No!", "I Hate My Hair!" and "Loving Gay Men!" and seven other supremely twisted lessons in love are included. The tales are interspersed with deranged advice columns by highly suspect "love experts".

From the Publisher:

Vintage romance comic strips twisted for today’s troubled lovers.

About the Author:

American humorist Jeanne Martinet is the author of several other works including the humorous 'how to' books The Art of Mingling and Artful Dodging. A long-time fan of romance comics, she only dates men with dark blue hair and sleek convertibles.
