Love Conquers All, at Least When It Uses Our Special Valentine's Day Cards

All illustrations by Chelsea Beck.

Valentine’s Day is upon us, and—what?! You haven’t bought your loved one a valentine yet? Or, rather, you bought one and it sucked because it wasn’t from io9? Lucky for you, we’re here to help with our annual batch of super-special Valentine’s Day cards for all the nerds and geeks in your life. Because we just love you all so damn much.

Star Trek: Discovery’s Michael Burnham turns her problems with authority into a declaration of love!


Or you could let your Valentine know he or she is the luckiest person in the universe.

Here’s a controversial one, as people have wondered why we didn’t just let a droid deliver it.


This valentine cost us tens of millions of dollars, although it turns out we could have gotten it way cheaper.


This helpful valentine is applicable in every relationship! (Hopefully.)


And finally, even the most feared being in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a heart:


Happy Valentine’s Day, guys! And infinite love to illustrator Chelsea Beck, who crafted these for us.
