Happy Day Before Post-Valentine’s Day Candy Sales! Open Thread with BONUS CREEPY V-DAY CARDS

Uh, what?

By David Futrelle

My earlier post today was so depressing I thought I’d post a thread to get everyone’s mind off of it. Celebrate V-Day or share your plans for the post-V-Day candy sales. Or just talk about whatever. No trolls!

Here are a few creepy vintage Valentine’s Day cards just for the hell of it.

Apparently some of the card-makers confused Valentine’s Day with Murder Day, which I don’t think is even an official holiday.

We Hunted the Mammoth is independent and ad-free, and relies entirely on readers like you for its survival. If you appreciate our work, please send a few bucks our way! Thanks!

@Crip Dyke,

Yes, I would like someone to look over these old pictures and give me some ideas on how to push the ideas in it further. Though how would you like me to get the files to you, once I create them? Would you want me to upload them to your Discord channel (if you have one), or is there someplace else you’d like them?

Be warned that these drawings are in the Not Ready for Prime Time category. Plus the fact that a quick look-over of those links shows me I have a good amount of research to do on how much ‘stuff’ should go into a wordless book before I can consider this thing ready to show to the publishers.

My thanks in advance for your help in this.

@RedSilkPhoenix:

I have discord, but I don’t think I have my own channel, unless that just means having an account at all.

I don’t use Discord much, but I certainly could – you’ll just have to give me pointers if I’m supposed to do anything to make it possible to transfer the artwork.

I’m Seedy#4091 on Discord.

My icon is a loaf of bread that I baked that came out perfect and golden.

Users can Direct Message each other, so (I think) all you need is an account and you’re good to go.

I’ll DM you in the next day or so, once I get these drawings scanned.

Thanks again for for help.
