Young Love Featurette - How We Met

The later years of DC's Young Love had more than its fair share of slightly kooky stories and featurettes. One recurring featurette that I really like is "How We Met," an ode to first impressions. Though they aren't much, the little stories are sweet and give a nice sampling of various artists.

This one from Young Love #116 (June/July 1975) chronicles the first encounter between a store cashier and a customer.

Next up we have the unlikely meeting of Joan and Rog from Young Love #123 (January 1977), with art by Michael Nasser (now Netzer). In love, looks sure can be deceiving!

Young Love #125's (May 1977) "How We Met" serves up a little dose of girl power from the guy's point of view -- written by Steve Skeates and art by Juan Ortiz and Vince Colletta.

I saved my favorite for last. This one comes from Young Love #112 (October/November 1974) and looks quite a bit like Winslow Mortimer (though inked by someone else). The reason I really like this one is because it is how my parents met! No joke!!!

After reading these, do you have a fun story about how your parents or you and your significant other met? With Valentine's Day approaching, I'd love to hear it!
