"3 Girls" was a rare experiment to introduce a running serial story to one of DC's romance comics. It lasted 22 episodes, through Heart Throbs #123, just making it into the seventies. There is no truth to the rumor that Sandy, Chris, and Marian have formed a bounty hunter organization and are now hunting super-criminals in the New 52.

Also, Sandy Simms is no relations to Chris Sims, dagnabbit.
