Worst Valentine’s Card Ever

Cidu Bill on Feb 14th 2017

Boise Ed: Are these two characters that we are supposed to recognize? (They’re not regulars in the strip [Foolish Mortals].) Otherwise, I have no idea what the joke is.

    Roy Lichtenstein-esque? Appropriate comic book art to espouse sentimentality (in this case ironicly)? I can see this being generic comic book style fighting, ironically recast for valentine’s day…

    That’s Goodguyman and The Sludge.

    More seriously, I just think they’re playing on the thin line of a love/hate relationship, like the Joker and Batman, without stepping on any trademarks.

    The green one looks like The Creature From The Black Lagoon. The blue one looks like The Blue Diamond.

    I was afraid that if I put in a link I might get sent to moderation, so am putting it in my second post. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Diamond_(comics)

    The little blue man?

    I’ve only heard the song once, so I had to search for the lyrics.

    Here’s The Little Blue Man: https://youtu.be/hAbU6-Yuuy0

    You have to be over 60 to remember it.

    If it’s a reference to the song, he should be saying “I don’t wuv you anymore.”

    You obviously saw a very different version of that movie than I.

    It’s a generic superhero fighting a generic lizardman.

    Maybe it’s supposed to be a ‘vinegar valentine’: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinegar_valentines

    I only heard about them today, and I don’t know whether to be glad or sorry they’re out of fashion.

    Lego Batman and Joker have a related conversation at 1:15
