    Actually, anyone of those is possible. I was thinking of it more as the bride setting up a fake marriage as a joke on the wanna-be-groom. But I deliberately left the meaning a bit fuzzy so that readers could come up with their own interpretations. paullup, you came up with some interesting ones I hadn’t thought of!

    Ouch! That’s an extreme sacrifice to make for a joke! :-)

    Thorby, check out my answer to coltish1 in this message thread.

    It’s definitely true that artist John Tartaglione used the same faces—-most notably the young “Vic Mature” character and to a lesser extend some women—-over and over again in his Charlton romance work. I suspect it’s because he got certain faces down pat and so it was easier just to keep re-using them. (That’s often why artists re-use the same faces in unrelated stories.)

    It’s worth noting that Charlton Comics paid the lowest page rates in the industry. So drawing quickly was essential to making a living at Charlton. And re-drawing the same characters would speed that us.

    It is likely that he based the Vic Mature characters on the actor. But I can’t rule out the possibility that Tartaglione had a friend or family member who served as the initial model.

    I know some creators who worked in romance comics and/or worked for Charlton. I hope to interview some of them this year. And asking about Tartaglione and his recycling of faces is definitely one of the topics I’ll ask about.

    A happy ending and not a Last Kiss. I love it. Congrats on how it turned out, Jack.

    There are at least two possible meanings to the comic. One is that—unknown to the supposed groom—this wasn’t a real wedding. So the bride was pulling a rather brutal joke on the groom.

    Two is that both the bride and groom arranged the fake wedding as a joke on the people attending the wedding.

    I’ve gathered from reading the comments here that some readers had other interpretations as well.

    Sometimes I like to do gags that have more than one possible meaning. Jim, I’m sorry this one was confusing.

    That’s horrible. I’m so sorry, Jack.
