This is the companion volume to John Benson's popular anthology of romance comics, Romance Without Tears. This new book explores the background of these 'romance' comics and their publisher, including a short biography, interviews with the editors and artists who worked for the company, and critical commentary. Confessions contains a time chart of every title published by St. John (all genres), showing issue number and date, and a complete, detailed checklist of all the company's romance comics, giving story titles, artist credits, and cross-indexing the extensive reprints. The book is lavishly illustrated with examples of the comics, and includes rare photos and other visuals from the period.
