Love is in the air at DC Comics this Valentine’s Day with the release of Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special #1.  Following hot on the heels of Justice League, Vol. 2: The Villain’s Journey collection, featuring the much-hyped first kiss between Superman and Wonder Woman in The New 52 continuity, Young Romance provides readers with a collection of six stories of superhero love. And with that, DC has provided us with a copy of each comic and a selection of superheroic Valentine’s Day cards just for you. Hit the jump for more details.

This DC giveaway is just the beginning of our increasing comic book coverage on Collider.  Over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you more features and a running assessment of DC’s The New 52, plus a lot more!  Be sure to let us know what comic book news and issues you’d like us to cover in the future.

Along with furthering the burgeoning romance between Wonder Woman and Superman, Ann Nocenti provides The New 52 continuity with the origin of the first meeting between Batman and Catwoman.  Also, Cecil Castellucci provides a solid tale of love lost with two of the recent surprise stars of the DCU: Aquaman and Mera.

Justice League, Vol. 2: The Villain’s Journey features the newly re-originated Justice League finishing out their first year facing their growing pains as a team.  The collection features a fresh take on the Justice League from Geoff Johns, excellently capturing the friction between the DCU’s heaviest hitters as they tackle their newest foe, Graves, a product of their own clash with Darkseid.  Johns’ provides not only a great storyline highlighting the growth and changes the League will be seeing in the upcoming year, but also supplies a fantastic banter between the Flash and Green Lantern, making this a great read while avoiding the snow this week.
