Whitewashed and recycled and made for loving: Wonderful Love Stories



Page Publications' wonderful Love Stories 34 features a Keith Chatto cover and contains the story A Stranger Called Love, which originally appeared in MV Features' Dream: A Romantic Picture Story #18. It also appeared in other Page Publications issues such as Romance and Confessions Library #86 and Best Love Stories #2.

The cover was recycled for the following issue, Wonderful Love Stories #5:


Wonderful Love Stories #5 contains the story Girls Are Made for Loving. this had been reprinted by Page Publications at least three times before, in the following issues:

 Best Love Stories #3

 Confessions & Love Library #10


Romance World Library #3 is an interesting case. According to AusReprints, the title on the splash page was removed. In Confessions & Love Library #10 and Wonderful Love stories #5, the title is intact, but the page numbers and original source information is whited out. The story originally appeared in MV Features' Dream: A Romantic Picture Story #11. It was subsequently printed in another UK comic, Sabre Romantic Stories in Pictures #45
