Candy hearts, chocolates, heart-shaped cakes and pizzas, and an open bag of Doritos on the floor next to your bed, this could only mean one thing, it’s Tuesday! But it’s not just Tuesday, no sir or ma’am! It’s more than Tuesday! While it is in fact true that it’s Tuesday, it’s also Valentine’s Day!
Valentine’s Day can mean a variety of things depending on the person. But whether you’re single, you really enjoy Valentine’s Day, or if you just feel like you’ve gotta buy your significant other something, we here at Geeks of Doom have put together a little list of comic books to get you through this day filled with love, chocolate, and corporate interest to make you spend money on an item to prove something that you should be proving every day! And isn’t that what it’s all about, love and stuff? Sure is! So, without further ado, here are five of my favorite romantic stories in comics in what I consider Comics’ Finest Love Stories. Admittedly, I don’t read a lot of love stories in comics, so this list may get really weird, really quick. Anyway, here it goes!
When you get names like Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary to write and David Fincher to direct, well, you have a special project on your hands. But when the names in question have varying styles that can get in the way of each other, the situation it not so exciting.
Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary spent the last two years adapting the graphic novel Black Hole by Charles Burns and with a director Alexandre Aja in place, things were moving smoothly. Then David Fincher replaced Aja at the helm and this is where things went bad. While David Fincher is an amazing director and can only do good things for this movie, apparently he has a sort of perfectionist routine to making his movies and this would have required a lot more of Gaiman and Avary than they were used to doing. Because of this, the duo stepped aside from the project and that’s where things stand now.
