Parkville was a quaint New England town full of history. The romance between Judy Dunn and Lee Sanders was perfect until Peter Byrnes arrived to write a book on the town's history. Peter was different from Lee; he was quieter, calmer but also much older. Judy was initially impressed that he found her so attractive but soon had stronger feelings, even though her friends made fun of her dating "the old bookworm". Trying to please her, Peter took Judy to a dance but left when he found the music too loud. At first Judy stays but when she realizes that Peter is "the one" she runs after him.

Indexer Notes

Original title was "I Went Too Far". Because of the risque nature of the original story, every page of this was heavily edited to receive approval by the Comics Code for reprint. Due to the heavy changes (including inking out of entire panels leaving them black), some have called this the most poorly reworked story in the history of comics.

Indexer Notes
