As I mentioned yesterday, DC’s Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special #1 features Valentine’s cards that you can punch out and give to the people you love. The book is out today, and Bleeding Cool has posted a look at all of the cards.
Some of them are amusing. I like the “You’ve been rebooted as my valentine” New 52 card above, partly because I think it’s funny and partly because no one’s going to give anyone a “New 52” card. There’s a Nightwing card that says “You’ve got Grayson beauty” and a Batman card that declares “Tonight is for just us”, which are kind of clever. On the other hand, the Catwoman card goes with “You’re purr-fect” and the Flash card reads “You stole my heart in a flash.” The Wonder Woman card calls into the latter, lamer category:
However, it does have some nice Adam Hughes art. If memory serves, that’s a piece they used in the New 52 mural at DC’s offices, and on the cover of the New 52 Free Comic Book Day issue a couple years back. So it’s lovely, but “You’re wonder-ful” is rather uninspired.
The best card by far is the one that features Swamp Thing:
Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special #1 is out today with a bunch of romantic stories and some fun Valentine’s cards, so check it out if only for the awesome Swamp Thing card.
