Top 50 Most Valuable Romance Comics

50 Most Expensive Romance Comics

After the superhero boom of the 1930s and 40s died out, Romance comic books became the hot seller.

Some of these comics are so rare and obscure that it's hard to get an accurate representation of their true value. For most of these comics, there are only a few copies still in existence, which significantly drives up the value (supply and demand at its finest). 

Could it be that because the majority of readers were women and young girls that most of these comics were simply tossed in the trash after reading?

For all of the comics listed below, consider them all very rare with only a handful in circulation.
