Ah, the agony and ecstasy of young love! Sadly, I don’t actually own this issue, so I can’t comment on what’s in it. It’s clearly a bunch of reprints quickly thrown together, as was DC’s wont at that time in the late-60s. Most of the comics line did this sort of thing with alarming regularity — sometimes as often as every three months or so. It’s interesting that this one identifies itself as a Giant Annual. It’s not an annual at all, it’s just issue #69 of the ongoing title, and, as far as I can work out, it was not repeated. There’s a variety of artists on display, including Irv Novick.

Gotta love the little cupids at top and bottom. Now there’s a sight you don’t see on many comics today!
