Spider-Man and Gwen or MJ. I love them both.

I read Spidey to my son over the past week or so and I like that they used Gwen, but I also adore the MJ spider books. Just so cute and innocent and wonderful.

Romances I hate: Spider-Man and Betty. One of my favourite pages of comics is when peter goes for coffee wih betty and realizes that it was just puppy love and they never really had a connection.

If you ever need the Defenders drawn as ponies or the cast of Doctor Who, I know where to hook you up.

Please don't want those things.


Congratulations Rhyno!

In the spirit of the old Romance in Comics thread I'm going to give a shoutout to the original storyline of Madam Masque and Iron Man.

No Decepticon in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.


I loved the recent Bats/Selena & Supes/Lois date issues. I think Supes & Lois is my favorite comic romance.

I also have a soft spot for Reed & Sue because of the wedding annual. That's one of my favorite comics of all time.

It wasn't chaste, they were relaxed and cuddling with Lois' head on Clark's shoulder. I also cracked up at it, it was just such a perfect representation of "this couple has been happily married for nearly 15 years" vs. "this couple just got engaged a week ago".

Same. I love the ending of that book. The rest of it has some issues but the ending is perfect.

There is no romance in Haikyuu. It's implied that the captain of the girl's team has a crush on the captain of the boy's team, but they don't let that get in the way of the volleyball

Ideally they'd have access to the art pre-balloon and resize appropriately. More annoying is the balloons that are significantly larger than they need to be.

Bad fonts and giant balloons are always fanslations

Also if they use honorifics it's probably that too

I've seen a few fan translations where they just type it in without regard for fitting it inside but put a thick white outline around the text so the words that go outside the balloon still pop from the background, but I don't know how common that is.

Im curious though what couples in fiction would not fall under this "writer fanfic" rule if these are all written by the actual authors

Is romance not allowed in fiction at all
