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.)
When I saw these 1966 Doubl Glo Batman Valentines on eBay, I could not resist. And once I got a good look at them I knew I had to scan them in and share them! (I’ve even included the packaging and the teacher card.)
Check out Batman’s giant head on the Batcopter one. Nora Fries is cured and loves puns? And what is that creature Batman is apparently stabbing in the neck (THUNK!) with a heart?!

Drawing all those little Facebook Like hands took a while, but it was totally worth it as this is by far the most downloaded valentine cartoon.
I had to draw that little candy heart relatively large to get it to read well visually. At that size you’d probably only get two or three in that box. What a gyp.
Every man’s Valentine’s Day dilemma.
My wife is a teacher and hates decorating bulletin boards, so I came up with this idea about this teacher who just keeps adding holidays to the mix.
Drawing cupids is no fun. So I have to feel really good about a cartoon if I’m going to have to draw two.
You know there’s an interesting backstory there…
Drawing people in mirrors always bugs me. Add two cupids to the mix and I must have really liked this valentine gag.
I had endless fun coming up with all the names for these valentine chocolates, but I think “White” was my favorite.
I wonder if that’s Debbie there in the meeting. Awk-ward…
So those are the most downloaded, but I also wanted to introduce you to this year’s new batch of Valentine cartoons. Enjoy:
Believe it or not coming up with “Sports Supermarket” took a while.
Objection! This so-called “expert” is a mythical winged baby!
See, that’s how they getcha!
Why is Cupid rubbing it in!? What a jerk!
Sweetest Day is just the worst. Everyone knows it.
This totally makes sense. Word is they’re also looking into securing a number of egg and dye contracts.
Still not satisfied?! Sheesh! Fine, here’s some other Valentine’s Day stuff you might enjoy:
But that’s it. Seriously, that’s all I got.
