Here's the abstract:
Romance comics, a type of comic that featured illustrated narratives about love, were developed in post-World War II America and marketed extensively to girls and young women. Through a variety of narrative and visual devices, many of these comics claimed to convey truth to their readers, thereby offering plausible models of behavior for their readers to emulate or avoid. Very few romance comics engaged with controversial topics, but one particular example, entitled " Good-By Innocence!" dealt extensively with the causes and consequences of premarital sex, one of the strongest taboos for young middle-class women of the mid-20th century.
