Love is parody.jpg

One of the Stock Parodies in comics is imitating Kim Grove's long-running Love Is... series. In part, because the whole point is a question already established as having near-infinite answers, which invites custom content. In part due to very exploitable format in general, that does not require any continuity at the same time.

Examples of "Love is..." Parody include:

Newspaper Comics

Web Comics

  • Dork Tower had fun with tweaking the original "Love is" comics into "Lovecraft is..." here and on the next page.
  • The PvP story arc "Ombudsmen" (a spoof of Watchmen) ends with a particularly explosive Love is... parody.

Web Original

  • Isolated examples can be found in many collections of humorous (or allegedly-humorous) images on the web.
