Love and romance are in the air, and this week we feature a collection that was built on both. Jasmin turned her boyfriend, Aron, onto comics two years ago, and today he submitted his collection of romance-themed comics, just in time for a certain heart-filled holiday coming up next week.

Although the two are currently in a long-distance relationship, one way they’re keeping in touch is through comics. Check it out below, and Happy early Valentine’s Day to Aron and Jasmin.

*****

My name is Aron. I’m from Los Angeles, CA. and I wanted to submit my kissing/romance/wedding theme comic book collection.

Two years ago my girlfriend, Jasmin, decided to take me to a free comic book day at one of our local comic shops. Needless to say she basically started my comic collection and hobby that day. A year later she had to move to Boston to pursue her education. That first year she was gone was one of the most challenging, yet we found ways to make it work. We spent a lot of time writing letters, sending packages, and online video chats. That year we spent Valentine’s day on opposite sides of the country. I decided to start picking up “love” themed comic books that I could send her as part of her Valentines day gift. Once I had a good stack going I sent her a box filled with the comic books as well as chocolates and other cliche holiday treats.

I decided to go with the comic books because I wanted her to know that even in my obsession and hobby, she was still at the core of it and a great influence in what I enjoy. I wanted her to know that I was still thinking about her even through the distance. It’s going to be her final semester away at school this coming spring and to be honest it doesn’t get any easier being apart, but it is possible and it can work in my opinion.

A bit more about my collection, I’ve got 503 love themed comics and the collection is only growing. They are divided into 5 categories: Kissing covers, Almost kissing, General Romance, Wedding theme, and Heartbreak covers. I grouped the pictures with similar characters, publishers, and themes. They are labeled appropriately in the attached pictures. I also have a collection of original art work that I had commissioned as well as some sketch covers.

Lastly, if this gets published on Valentine’s Day 2014 I’ll be fortunate enough to be spending it with my lovely Jasmin in Boston or New York because I couldn’t spend another year not celebrating together. There shouldn’t only be a single day to tell the people you love that you love them, but for the sake of the holiday please know that if you are reading this beside me that I care deeply about you dear, I know we can make it, and that I love you very much.

“If I live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you” – A.A. Milne & E.H. Shepard

-Sincerely, Aron

Aww, what a sweet story, and a nice collection.

“Applause”….. Well done sir, well done indeed.

Nice. I also recommend SAGA # 15 Legion of Superheroes Annual # 2 Karate Kid wedding and Action Comics 593 with Big Barda

Great collection! Some great issues you have ! Beautiful covers

Gambit and Rogue Forever!!!!

Fantastic collection! I had no idea how many kissing covers or almost kissing covers there are. I love how you found a theme and stuck with. Well done, indeed.

Nice….only saw four from my collection on there….Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours….cheers…

@Spike Action with Big Barda and Saga 15 is there…..and I saw another so that’s 4+1 from my collection.

Wish Morrison didn’t make Talia irredeemable. Always thought that dynamic and the conflicts within both characters had a lot more story potential than it was given.

There’s a great Adam Hughes Wonder Woman cover with Superman embracing her from behind. Can’t remember which # it was….

Paul is thinking of Wonder Woman 141.

For a non super hero book that would fit your collection and tie into the long distance aspect of your relationship, take a look at True Story Swear to God by Tom Beland. Would definitely go in your collection and would mirror some of your relationship. Love (heh) the idea of a themed collection. Enjoy your upcoming reunion.

Sappy.

Disturbingly sappy.

Give me your address – first we’re gonna watch Robocop together, then First Blood, John Wayne in Rio Bravo, The Terminator, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and to finish it off, The Great Escape.

Afterwards we’ll burn that copy of Eat, Pray, Love. Then we’ll read some Sin City comics together. And I’ll put you to bed by reading some Lee Child novels.

Just joking : )

… not really.

Either I’m missing it, or you completely forgot X-Men 30, the wedding of Cyclops and Jean Grey!

One of the best collecting stories… nay, best love stories… I’ve ever heard. My wife and I survived a long-distance courtship partially through our mutual love of comics, too, but we weren’t clever enough to think of something as beautiful and amazing as this. All the best for your future together, Aron and Jasmin!

Carry on! Show your LOVE!!!

I love nerd love, don’t you?
Cool collection, to say the least!

TOP MAN,
applause around for featuring this and collecting this.
Hope it works out for you guys

That’s great! Love is nothing to be scoffed at.

“Bro Kiss.” Nice.

Great collection, and great inspiration behind it. Best of luck in love!

Very unique collection. Who would have thought to categorize any collection in such a way.Kudos.

That is a sweet story. One day I want a comic book themed Valentines day.
