I Love Marvel

I ♥ Marvel (aka I Heart Marvel or I Love Marvel and commonly stylized as I (heart) Marvel) was a series of connected one-shots published by Marvel Comics around February 2006 (although cover-dated April 2006) to coincide with the romance-themed holiday of Valentine's Day.

The series told several romantic stories featuring characters from the Marvel comics universe, with each issue focusing on a different area of the Marvel universe (X-Men, supervillains, etc.).

Despite appearing to be a typical fifth-week event comic, February 2006, like every February (excepting leap years), had only four weeks.
