From Young Love #111 (1974) comes this one-page example of how comics could be just as, er…  educational (ahem) as entertaining. Young ladies following this advice would be sure not to lose their man, after all, as Shakespeare knew, that shrew ought to be tamed. Who could blame a guy for dumping a girl who insisted on going to see a movie more than once? Why, had this been published a decade earlier one could easily believe that it informed Tammy Wynette’s career.

On the other hand, how come a boyfriend-stealing harpy gets described as ‘nice’ in the final panel? Hmmm, sexual politics, seventies style!
