Miss Beverly Hills of Hollywood

Genres: Romance
Publisher: DC Comics

Vol 1: Mar/Apr 1949 – Jul/Aug 1950
An odd entry into the field of celebrity comics, this title featured Miss Beverly Hills and her interactions with real life Hollywood guest stars including Alan Ladd and Wanda Hendrix. Beverly had a newspaper reporter boyfriend named Will Shire (A play on LA’s Wilshire Boulevard) and most stories revolved around her desire to meet movie stars and become a star herself. The series blended the celebrity, humor and romance genres with mixed results and sadly the title only made 9 issues. However Beverly did make a brief return as a backup feature in four issues of The Adventures of Bob Hope.
