Strange Love on Haikuesday

You want love on Valentine's Day? Here:

That's love. Remember, everything has pros and cons, and if you're not in good relationship on Valentine's Day, that's worlds better than being in a bad one. Meanwhile, read "Batman and the Monster Men", and fall in love with comics all over again. Oh, and because poetry is the language of love, help Hugo compose a Valentine Haiku for Batman.

Also, The Comic Treadmill is running a poll on superpets. At first, I was insulted that monkeys are not eligible, but then I realized that's because monkeys would automatically win. That gloryhound Krypto is beating the figurative pants off Topo. Topophiles, represent! I, and the other members of the North America Man/Octopus Respect Association, implore you to support Topo, who is our celebrity spokesmodel and Aquaman's special friend.

What grace! What power!

I love you... Now DIE!!!!

You nailed the reason why monkeys are excluded. We wanted some suspense in the poll.

And as much as Krypto rules, I too voted for Topo, because he's mastered his many accomplishments without the benefit of super powers.

Ahh yes, sweet octopus..., "respect"?!?
Dude, it's Valentine's Day! Where's the LOVE???

And another, not insignificant, reason for excluding monkeys from our latest poll. We were afraid that if we included monkeys, people might get easily confused and vote for their favorite planet instead.

What is this feeling
Normally Hugo digs girls
I'm gay for you, Bats

A dark Gotham Knight
Broods over his cold city
Hugo loves Batman

Lab coats and test tubes
Can't compare with you, Batman
Kisses, Hugo Strange

Oh my sweet Batman
Know the joy of my test tube
And I, the Bat Pole

Bubblegum Tate said...

It is forbidden
This love of ours, my sweet Bruce
This Brokeback Gotham

Geoff; I was going for the NAMOR joke ya see...

H; AH, well, that's ALWAYS a potential problem...

Captain Infinity said...

Simply replace "respect" with "romance" and you've got your NAMOR.

Hugo loves Batman
Adam loves Rann's Allana
Does Dr. love Wong?

My verification is "izbikg" -- is that what Carol says when she's a little tipsy?

Now it's "doqat" -- a Yemeni drug slogan!

Batman would rather
foil my plans than sleep with hot
redheads. He loves me.
