Set The Mood: Strange Love Adventures


Didn't think you'd be spending V-Day with dinosaurs and an eagle, did you? (Unless that's your norm.)

Cupid’s on his way and Strange Love Adventures are on the horizon! I can’t really pick which story I’m looking forward to reading most – maybe something on the Peacemaker side given my current anticipation for the series … although I’m also a huge HQ fan, and there’s never a shortage of wit where the Flash is involved. :thinking: Looks like a three-way tie.

Thus, as a firm lover of all, those stars made their way into my Valentine’s board this week. :heart:


Hold up, Static. What the heck is a moodboard?
Putting it simply, moodboards are a series of graphics that are used as a way of capturing the atmosphere surrounding a particular subject to briefly immerse the viewer into the “mood” of said subject. Kind of like collages! Which is why there’s no right or wrong way to make one. You could make one entirely out of relevant quotes, or organize one by a certain color palette, or just fill it up with pics of things that represent the subject point-blank. It’s your board!

How do I make a moodboard? How do I post it here?
Personally, I find the easiest way to make moodboards is through Pinterest. For those who aren’t familiar with the site, it’s a hub for images/videos that can be added to “boards” you create based on personal interests or whatever you’re particularly searching for. Many people use it for the sole purpose of creating moodboards, so there’s plenty of stuff to work with there if you’re not inclined to create one from scratch.

That said, you’re also free to make one through any editing program if you don’t wanna go about making a whole Pinterest account! Just paste the graphic(s) here as you would any other image. If you’re doing a Pinterest board, feel free to drop the link to it, or provide a preview screenshot!

And finally, for those who don’t wanna do either of those things but still want to participate, you’re more than welcome to create a moodboard of your own here by posting any pictures you may find relevant and just sort of talking about your thought process on them. (Ex. post a photo of masks and talk about how that may relate to “Crazy” Jane.) Otherwise, feel free to just openly discuss your thoughts on the topic at hand.

For now, let’s also stick to posting :warning: ONE BOARD PER PERSON (PER TOPIC)! :warning:

Who would you set up in a Strange Love Adventure?


Okay, here is my Strange Love Adventures moodboard, although some of it isn’t that strange.

Jessica Cruz, because she reminds me of my V; Superman and Jimmy, the ultimate comic book bromance; Zatanna, because she was my first comic book crush; Jonah Hex, because Jonah deserves love too; The Sandman and Diane Belmont, one of my favorite comic book couples, and Adam Strange, because you can get much stranger (no pun intended) than his romance and eventual marriage to Alanna.


Love this contribution in particular! Always very endearing to hear you talk about V. :smile:

Great board, by the way! I would definitely be interested in reading the (b)romantic mishaps these folks could potentially get caught up in. :eyes:

Fun question: what V-day related trouble could you see Jimmy and Supes running into?


I think I’d like to see something like one of those goofy old Silver Age stories. Maybe Superman and Lois and Jimmy and Lucy agree to go on a double date for Valentine’s Day, but Superman keeps getting delayed because of various members of his rouges gallery keep committing crimes around Metropolis!
