Superhero Valentines

Even comic book readers need love, and what better way to approach your heart’s desire than with a card featuring Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman? What woman could say no to that?

Here are a selection of vintage greetings cards and stickers – produced between 1940 and 1990 – that show an unusually sentimental side to (mostly DC) comic book heroes and villains. Feel free to forward any of these to your secret crush, and don’t forget to invite us to the inevitable wedding that follows.
