Usually when people think of comic books, they think of capes and
tights and violence, but love has always played a role in the world of
comic books. Dating back to the 1940s, in the comics Golden Age where
genre books were all the rage, titles like Young Romance
by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby told tales of love and romance in comic
book form. Romance comics faded in the 1950s, but saw a resurgence in
the Silver Age with books like Millie the Model by Marvel Comics
In today’s day and age of comics, there are many books that tell the
tales of love, relationships, hardships and happiness. Books like Strangers in Paradise by Terry Moore, Blue Monday by Chynna Clugston, Empowered by Adam Warren, Love Fights by Andi Watson, 12 Reasons Why I Love Her and Love The Way You Love by Jamie S. Rich and various artists, Blankets by Craig Thompson and even Preacher by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon all touch on the concept of love in comics.
But romance doesn’t just have to be limited to comics about love.
Even super hero books get touched with the love bug as they depict the
romantic relationships such as Superman and Lois Lane, Green Arrow and
Black Canary, Cyclops and Jean Grey, Hawkeye and Mockingbird…the list
goes on and on.
So find that special someone, get comfortable and prepare to be
overwhelmed with butterflies and happy thoughts as we stroll through
the world of Romance Comics!
