Zippy and his occasional wife Zerbina are often uncertain about just how to celebrate various holidays. including Valentine’s Day. But their hearts are in the right place—now, of they could only remember where that was…’

I’m currently doing a cartoon countdown on my blog. I have done this the last couple of years as a personal challenge to come up with 14 new Valentine and Love cartoons. Here’s a link 

And here’s a Six Chix Valentine’s greeting:

–Stephanie Piro

Here’s a Ketcham Klassic Valentine greeting.


–Ron Ferdinand, Dennis the Menace

This based on an actual traffic jam I witnessed in Queens, NY. I have never bought roses from my car, but right now, it’s way too cold to buy fresh flowers!

–Isabella Bannerman, Six Chix

Well, let’s hope you don’t get caught in a jam this Valentine’s Day, and instead enjoy lots of love, laughter, and most importantly, chocolate!
