The True, Shocking Messages Found In Store-Bought Valentines Featuring Spider-Man, The Avengers, Big Hero 6, Adventure Time And More


Over the years, we here at ComicsAlliance have brought you definitive rankings of the various comics-related valentines parents can buy for their kids at their local pharmacies and big-box stores. We sure have had a lot of fun cracking jokes about mass murderer General Zod wishing kids an enjoyable day and Spider-Man's flying motorcycle.

When Editor-in-Chief Andrew Wheeler threw a twenty in my face and told me, "You've got the valentines beat this year, Wilson," I thought that's what I'd be doing. Cranking out a few yuks about some cheap novelties. Little did I know that I would be taking a trip...down the rabbit hole.

Store-Bought Valentine Rankings: Batman, Spider-Man, Power Rangers, The Avengers And The Surprisingly Depressing Hello Kitty

ComicsAlliance Valentine Throwdown 2014

Valentine's Day is upon us once again, which means that tomorrow, we are all legally required to give the people we love little pieces of paper that sum up exactly how we feel about them, in tribute to a Catholic saint who was clubbed to death and beheaded. Truly, it is the most romantic of all times.

But for superhero fans, it does present a problem. Obviously, we all want to express our devotion to romantic partners while also expressing our devotion to our favorite characters, but are any of the superhero valentines that you can find in stores across the country actually good? If you pick up the Batman valentines at your local Target, will your love life be soaring to new heights above Gotham City, or will it be gunned down in an alley leaving you alone to wage war on crime? It's a daunting task, which is why every year, I take the hit for you to find out if there are any good store-bought superhero valentines.

1966 Batman Valentines Are The Purest Possible Expression Of Romance

1966 Batman Valentines, via Mark Anderson

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!

Mark Millar Valentines Make Every Other Valentine Look Like $#!+


Last year, the staff of ComicsAlliance regaled you with our Cerebus Valentines, a series of tender love notes based on the work of Dave Sim. As the most romantic of holidays inspired by the brutal murder of a priest drew near once again, we naturally turned next to the oeuvre of the superhero comics writer who has looked deepest into the fragile, complicated chambers of the human heart and explored the profoundly transformative experience of romantic love like no other creator before...
