Superhero Valentines

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:

1966 Batman Valentines

Superhero Valentines - Batman 1966 1 Superhero Valentines - 1966 Batman 2

Love that 1966 Batmobile! (And that hand lettering!)

Superhero Valentines - 1966 Batman 3

Superhero Valentines - 1966 Batman 4

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.

Check out the rest of these Batman valentines here.

1979 Marvel Valentines

Superhero Valentines - 1979 Spider-ManSuperhero Valentines - 1979 Spider-Man 2

Too late, Spidey, my Stalker-Sense is tingling.

Superhero Valentines - 1979 Hulk 1

Superhero Valentines - 1979 Hulk 2

Nothing says I Love You like the threat of impending violence. This one makes Spidey look downright well adjusted. Sheesh!

1980 DC Superhero Valentines

Superhero Valentines - 1980 SuperFriends 1

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…

Superhero Valentines - 1980 SuperFriends 2

That PlasticMan one is disturbing. Just saying.

Superhero Valentines - 1980 SuperFriends 3

Batwoman?! That’s clearly Batgirl.

More 1966 Batman Valentines

Superhero Valentines - 1966 Batman 2 - 1

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.

Superhero Valentines - 1966 Batman 2 - 2

Robin, you’re making me… uncomfortable. Also, that’s a rope, not a trapeze.

Superhero Valentines - 1966 Batman 2 - 3

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!

I dare you not look at the rest of these.

1978 Wonder Woman Valentines

Superhero Valentines - 1978 Wonder Woman 1

OK, technically these are more general romance cards than true Valentine’s Day cards, but I couldn’t resist sharing these.

Superhero Valentines - 1978 Wonder Woman 2

Environmentalist Wonder Woman, you had me at ‘energy crisis.’

Superhero Valentines - 1978 Wonder Woman 3

That is pretty lame, but I’m not proud. Yes. Yes, Wonder Woman, I would.

See the rest of these unbelievably awesome cards here.

So, if you’re in a lurch for superhero valentines, feel free to print these out! And have a super Valentine’s Day!







DC Super Powers 1988/2016 Wallpaper Calendar


Happy New Year!

Did you know that calendars repeat occasionally? There’s a 28 year cycle wherein certain years will begin on the same day of the week as other years. (There’s a more detailed explanation here.) For example, 2016 has the same days and dates as the years 1988, 1960, 1932 etc… Neat, huh?

So while there’s a lot of nice 2016 calendars out there, I’m going a little more old school and hanging up this 1988 DC Super Powers calendar instead. (Believe you me, a good leap year superhero calendar was hard to find!) And as long as I was scanning everything in, I thought I’d share them!

Click on the images below and you’ll get big beautiful 2560 x 1200 images with both the top image page and the bottom calendar page. Feel free to grab them and use them as some awesome desktop wallpapers.

Have a great year!
