Sally has the love of a good guy, Frank, but she doesn’t appreciate him. He’s boring...a square! She meets Buck, a night watchman at Shipman’s Department Store, and that’s where it all goes wrong. Buck is as bad as Frank is good, as exciting as Frank is boring. Some girls like bad boys. Sally does. Sally also likes the presents Buck gives her, but isn’t inquisitive enough about where they are coming from. Buck expects repayment for his gifts to her, and we all know what that means.
I like the pre-fabricated house inside the department store. Just the thing for illicit love after the store doors are closed. But for Sally, it signals the end of her “Side-Street Love.”
This tale of a good love thrown over for a bad boy lover, is from Harvey Comics’ First Love Illustrated #15 (1951). Artwork is by Bob Powell.
