Quantcast

This Valentine's Day, thousands of guys will buy their special someone some flowers and a box of chocolate.  The two of them might go to dinner or a movie, and at the end of the day, he'll get a kiss goodnight and maybe even an "Aww you are so sweet."  And that's all any man could ever ask for, right?

Well, if not, maybe your sweetheart could just use a little clue on what to get you on Valentine's Day.  This year, your local comicbook store has just the thing!  Valentine's comics are perfect to read together, featuring all the superheroes and villians you want, and all of the mushy, cute things that she appreciates.  So snuggle up with your favorite comic, and enjoy Valentine's Day the way it was meant to be celebrated.  Whether it's a love for your favorite hero, or for someone else, buying a comic is the best way to show your appreciation.

No romantic holiday would be complete without a little poem that might sweep them off their feet:

Superman's smile is so pleasent,
And Catwoman is wearing leather,
So this year pick up a Valentine's present,
You can both enjoy reading together.

You won't want to miss these!

Finally back in print!
