What says romance more than comics? If there is anything, we don't want to know about it. Once again we're offering a special selection of romantic and/or erotic gift books with which to woo your sweetie this Valentine's Day. From classic romance comics to cutting-edge erotica, from sweet to twisted, from timeless to unexpected (zombies?), these comics are fluent in the many dialects of love.
From now through the day in question (February 14, 2009), SAVE 15% on all of our Valentines Day gift selections!
Paul Hornschemeier announcement: Paul will be designing and illustrating every release from Paper Egg Books, a new subscription-only book series from featherproof Books. No images yet, but the books are sure to be as "hotly handsome" as the Paper Egg site says Paul is. More info in the official announcement.
Must Read: The New York Times looks at the "Schulz's Beethoven: Schroeder's Muse" exhibit currently on view (and listen) at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center. (Grateful thanks to tipster Paul Hornschemeier.)

From Robert Goodin: "I've just launched a blog called Covered that has an artist redrawing a comic cover in their own style. Participating artists will come from the fields of comics, animation, graphic design, and galleries from all over the world and some will be well known and some not so well known." There's just a couple of entries so far, but it looks like it's gonna be great. Above: Jeffrey Brown's version of Secret Wars #10.
