A Valentine’s Day Greeting From Amanda, Age 30

We asked one of our contributing writers, Amanda LaPergola, to create a series of geek-inspired Valentine’s Day cards like she did in 2012. We asked if that was something she would be able to handle.  She said it was.  We asked if she would be able to make the deadline (sometime before Valentine’s Day).  She said that would be no problem.  We asked if she was really, really, really sure that this was something she wanted to do and was capable of handling on her own.  She through her head back and laughed.  And that is how we left things with her.

This afternoon, we had heard nothing from Amanda, and we assumed that no Valentines would be had.  Just as we were about to close up Mary Sue Headquarters, a woman arrived at the offices.  This woman, we assumed, was Amanda’s mom.  She handed us a single piece of paper, shrugged, and left before we could ask her anything.

This is the paper we were given…

DC’s New 52 Wants to Be Your Valentine. Will You Say Yes?

Readers who picked up DC’s (deep breath) Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special #1 this week were treated to an assortment of punch out-able mini-Valentine’s Day cards. I’d like to punch some of these cards out. By which I mean… look, I love puns, but some of these are bad. And not bad in a good way. Bad in a lazy way. But I guess bad in a lazy way is good in a Valentine’s Day way because Valentine’s card puns tend not to be good, even in a bad way…

Sorry ’bout that. I think I curdled my brain trying to figure out what the play on words is with “You’ve got Grayson beauty.” Someone throw me a bone here?
