Romance + Floating Heads = Happy (Very Belated) Valentine's Day!

 Floating heads in comic books

Hello! I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day last week! I am delinquent on this post, but unfortunately, the last leg of my move had to take first priority. It was a little hectic and stressful, but I made it! Anyhow, today I have for you examples of floating heads. Yes, you heard that right -- floating heads. Quite common in the romance comic books actually. You will see as you scroll down that disembodied craniums were used in the romance comics to convey longing, confusion, and obsession! Please enjoy this emotion-filled, cerebral ride!
