I think it's been well established over the years here at ComicsAlliance that the purest and most beautiful way to express your love for another person is by saying it with Batman -- and apparently, we're not the only ones who think so. Thanks to the indispensable Mark Anderson, a cartoonist whose Andertoons blog is an endless source of comics ephemera, we can now have a look at a series of bizarre Valentines from the late '60s, inspired by the Batman TV show!

It's not just the Caped Crusader himself, either. It's probably to be expected that you'd get the Boy Wonder involved, but special guest villains like Zelda the Great are in there, too, and if you've ever wanted to see the romantic side of the Penguin, folks, you are in luck. Check out a few of our favorites below!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

See, that last one is funny because he turned to a life of crime after being driven mad with grief that his beloved wife was suffering what is essentially a living death. So Romantic!

For more, and to see them at a higher resolution that you can print out and give to the World's Foremost Batmanologist in your life (hint hint) head over to Andertoons!
