I love comics and I love Valentine’s Day, so over the years I’ve collected a lot of different superhero valentines. Here are just a few of my very favorites:
Love that 1966 Batmobile! (And that hand lettering!)
I dunno what it is exactly that Batman has against a giant red heart, but I trust that he know what he’s doing. He is Batman after all.
Too late, Spidey, my Stalker-Sense is tingling.
Nothing says I Love You like the threat of impending violence. This one makes Spidey look downright well adjusted. Sheesh!
OK, these are actually kind of amazing. The idea was to punch out the various parts, put them together, and make 3D action valentines. I tried a few out and they’re challenging, but so rewarding. Here’s some more…
That PlasticMan one is disturbing. Just saying.
Batwoman?! That’s clearly Batgirl.
People simply could not get enough Batman back in the 60’s. Even if they’re weird and pretty poorly drawn. And have the answers upside-down on the bottom.
Robin, you’re making me… uncomfortable. Also, that’s a rope, not a trapeze.
OK, you’ve got me on this one. Batman stabbing a dragon/snake with a heart to demonstrate his feelings?! Bad. But that “THUNK!” sound is just awful!
OK, technically these are more general romance cards than true Valentine’s Day cards, but I couldn’t resist sharing these.
Environmentalist Wonder Woman, you had me at ‘energy crisis.’
That is pretty lame, but I’m not proud. Yes. Yes, Wonder Woman, I would.
So, if you’re in a lurch for superhero valentines, feel free to print these out! And have a super Valentine’s Day!
This month’s Fast on the Draw is one for all the lovers out there. Enjoy this Valentine’s Day cartoon:
February 14th is fast approaching, so I thought I’d share this year’s crop of valentine cartoons! (Plus a few extras.) Enjoy!
‘Tis better to have paired and lost than never to have paired at all.
But his platonic friendship numbers are through the roof!
I have to say, I don’t love drawing cherubs. So drawing four of them in a meeting was not something I was looking forward to. Thankfully I really liked this joke.
Awww… I mean, oh… I mean, ewwww…
If I ever obtain an allergy to chocolate, you have my permission to pull the plug. But grab and pull it by the plug, not the cord, OK? That’s not safe.
I spent a lot of time look at closeups of spider faces for this cartoon. Take that, people who say I don’t suffer for my art!
OK, so that’s this year’s batch of valentine cartoons. Still not feeling the love? Well, here’s some…
I’ve had to read this aloud at a few presentations. It’s tricky and it takes a little pre-talk practice. So if you hear me doing it, I’m not crazy, I’m preparing.
This is probably one of the downright meanest valentine cartoons I’ve ever done. But it makes me snort when I laugh.
I’m more of a Marvel guy than DC. And that shirt was totally fun to draw.
I don’t normally do cartoons with more than one gag in them because I’m basically lazy. But every so often I dig into something like this one and it’s totally satisfying. (I’m particularly proud of Fudgy Epiphany!’)
That’s right. I took on Sweetest Day. Aw… yeah…
Still not enough? Well lucky for you I’ve got a bunch more Valentine’s Day Cartoons. You’re gonna love ’em! (Get it?! Get it?! Sigh… I’m sorry.)
Just a reminder that if you’re using my 1988/2016 DC Super Powers calendar for your desktop wallpaper, it’s time for an update.

Wanna grab the other months? Here’s all 12 for you!
Cat cartoons! People love cats, and they certainly provide cartoonists with plenty of cartoon fodder, so it’s no surprise that I’ve done my fair share of cat cartoons over the years. Here’s just a few of my favorites nicely organized into some creative categories for your browsing pleasure:
This cat has a lot to think about. I mean really. Soul searching time.
Anthropomorphic cats are simultaneously the easiest and hardest to draw.
This was a good two hours of drawing and a fair bit of Google Images research for a little tiny quiet joke. Totally worth it though.
Second row, far right is my favorite. He looks a little woozy.
How does the fish drink? Theories welcome.
Me too. Wait, hold on… Nope, on second thought…
It tested great with cats.
This joke makes me feel-ine happy. I just ruined it, didn’t I. My apologies.
OK joke, but love the photo in the background.
Seuss is SO hard to get right. Reader’s Digest bought this one later and I then had to color it like Seuss. Argh!
I bet it’s like yawning, They’re all going to do it in a second.
Thought about using the same art for both “Me” and “Ow,” but I’m an artist, damnit!
I hate drawing thought bubbles. They’re trickier than you think.
Still not satiated? Check out all my feline funnies! Then take a nap. You’ve earned it.
