wonder woman valentine

Friend of Queerty Brian C. Cummings shared this wonderful Valentine’s Day card, dating back to the 1940s. It’s an early example of comic-book merchandising, in which sapphic heroine Wonder Woman proclaims,  “FOR YOU, VALENTINE, I’D MOVE­­ – HEAVEN AND EARTH!”

But what truly makes this a queer valentine is the inscription, “To Franklin, from Robert Ager”

As Cummings wisely says, “history speaks more often than most may think.”
