Such was the starry-eyed summer fling of “Negro Romance” — the only Black romance comic ever printed between the 1930s and the 1950s, known as America’s Golden Age of Comics. It was startling and rare for its positive depiction of African Americans in the era, particularly in its portrayals of young Black women as romantic heroines. But groundbreaking as it may have been, the magazine lasted just three issues in 1950 and then, with exception of one issue reprinted in 1955, almost completely disappeared from history.https://blogs.loc.gov/loc/2020/02/love-in-the-comics-the-star-crossed-story-of-negro-romance/
