Special Kind of Trouble

I came across this little piece of odd americana the other day, I thought that it had been lost over various house moves across the country, but there it was slumbering flatly at the bottom of a draw, almost arthurian in manner, waiting for its time.

'It happened to Alice' was a small comic produced by Archie Entreprises in the 80's and was used by the American AA (there is an address for Grand Central Station in the back). I have no idea how I came to own this and its brother but it is a fascinatingly moral slice of trash.

Oh, and remember it could happed to ANY woman, even the one next door with 7 kids.
