Synopsis
From the Reid Fleming website: "What kind of a man fools around with the wife of the World's Toughest Milkman? Laszlo, Great "Slavic" Lover, that's who!
Risking grave danger at the hands of Reid Fleming, Laszlo pursues the affair ardently - until the day he meets Constance - The Woman of His Dreams! An Epic Tale of Perfidy, Lust, Woe, and Chickens Coming Home to Roost." [http://www.reidfleming.com/heartbreak.html, accessed 12/10/07]

Indexer Notes

A new version of the Heart Break Comics strip that first appeared in Vancouver's Georgia Straight newspaper in 1977. The artist notes in the intro that some ideas and scenes are used from the original but the drawings are brand new.
