F#&% Yeah Comic Relationships: A Tumblr For Love
With all the death, destruction, heartbreak, misery, and Nazi gorillas of modern comics, it’s nice to see certain blogs which focus on the sweeter aspects of comic books. They keep us from forgetting that there’s a lot of fun stuff mixed in with the sturm und drang. Ultra-long serial fiction allows for sprawling, yet loving, families, deep friendships, and tons of hilariously dated slang. Most of all, though, it allows romantic relationships to spring up between almost everyone. Add some fan-canon to that and it turns into absolutely everyone.
F–k Yeah Comic Relationships (link NSFW due to the title of the site not being abbreviated by a hyphen in the actual URL), is a Tumblr account that posts panels, scans, commissions and fan art devoted to people’s favorite relationships in comic books — and the ones they wish existed.
There are occasionally waves of pairings. Sometimes several Catwoman and Batman posts give way to three or four postings of Cyclops and Emma Frost. For the most part, though, the site is a jumble. Sometimes the couple is embracing or playing around, and sometime they’re just on the same panel together. Sometimes they’re officially in continuity (see: Aquaman and Mera), and sometimes they exist as a couple only in the fevered imagination of an ardent fan (see: Aquaman and Ariel, the Little Mermaid). Thankfully, there aren’t too many scenes or scans of heartbreak, but every new entry is different.
There are some subtle, and hot, pictures.
Some funny, and cute, fanart.
And there’s even a fan comic or two.
Say it with me: Awwwww.
F–k Yeah Comic Relationships is a great place to go to get your fix of romance and fun. Just a FYI, though: While there don’t seem to be any graphic scenes of nudity or sex, the site caters to a wide range of fans. If you can’t stand the sight of Batman sucking Nightwing’s face like a deadly snake has just bitten it and he has to get the poison out, F–k Yeah Comic Relationships might not be the place for you. But if you’re willing to scroll past what you have no interest in — and I have to say, if you’re not, why are you on the Internet — it’s the perfect place to go to see your favorite comics couples in all their glory.
