7 Comic Books to Buy Your Sweetheart (or Yourself) This Valentine’s Day

I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is here again, and as always I love the comic books that center on the theme of love–I’m a hopeless romantic, what can I say? Not all of us have a special someone to share the day with so if that’s the case don’t judge us while we treat ourselves to a comic book… or seven. Who knows maybe you’ll meet your comic book loving other half while you’re browsing the shelves for these Valentine’s Day suggestions:

Death Be Damned #1 from Boom! Studios

Written By: Ben Acker

Seven outlaws have killed Miranda Coler and her family, but her death turned out to be a little less permanent than they expected. Blessed with the inability to fully die until she exacts revenge on her family’s killers, but cursed to lose a part of her memories every time she’s ‘killed,’ Miranda will need the help of Joseph Murray, an undertaker dabbling in necromancy hoping to bring back his wife, if she’s ever to find peace. Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Deadpool Vs. Gambit, The Thrilling Adventure Hour) team up with Hannah Christenson (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons, Harrow County) for a supernatural tale of revenge in the Old West, perfect for fans of Pretty Deadly and The Sixth Gun.
