Synopsis

Lyn admires the way everyone likes her boyfriend Dave until a new secretary starts at work that is hard to like. She discovers she need to take action alone because Dave is afraid to stand up for what is right and taking risks.

Notes

This reprint is Spanish art from a UK publication. The artwork seems to have more than one style, reflecting joint work or an artist swiping from more experienced colleagues. Some of the eyes (heavily lashed eyes) and faces (square jawed men) look like José Beá. However, the art lacks Beá usual strong composition, confident lines and decorative elements.
