Valentine’s Day II: The Reckoning.

§ February 22nd, 2010 § Filed under Uncategorized § 7 Comments

Okay, your pal Mike is still struggling with his migraine, and he has deadlines to meet on top of that, so instead of writing all that stuff I keep telling you I’m going to write, I’m instead following up on my Valentine’s Day post, where I presented a special card made just for me by pals Dana and Jorean. I mentioned then that they had made more cards that just that, and here are a couple of them:

The Blade card:

• • •
The Wolverine card:


(Red doesn’t react well to JPEG reduction, so let me transcribe: “Wolver HATES Valentine’s Day / Because everyone he has ever loved DIES – We hope you don’t die!”)

The metallic superhero sticker-thingies on the front don’t show up very well there, so here they are after I fooled around with the brightness/contrast settings:


Anyway, those are some swell cards, huh? And, um…I’m assuming “Wolver” is a thing for some fans, but I’m not Googling it up. I’d rather not know.

    Feel better!

    Well, I’m glad you got so much entertainment out of our cards. We definitely had way too much fun making them. However, you missed Silver Surfer: “You may not be the Silver Surfer, but at least you’re not a home wrecker!”, and Iron-Man: “Iron-Man is the ULTIMATE tool…and so you are you! (a tool that is!)” and my personal favorite, The Hulk: “At least you aren’t doomed to a life of solitude and sadness!”

    Wow, that’s a hunk of change right there.

    Dana, don’t forget the Frank Castle one too! “Frank Castle says: I want to shoot you in the face” “Instead we’ll just give you this card. And bust your knee caps” or something like that.

    As for “Wolver”. I have a coworker who has a son obsessed with Wolverine, but he can’t say “Wolverine”, just “Wolver”, so I just picked that up there…

    Glad you liked our cards. We had way too much fun making them.

    From that article about Action #1,

    “There are only about 100 copies of Action Comics No. 1 believed to be in existence”

    That can’t be right?
