BLAM! KRACK! POW! Look out—it's…love?! Falling in love is rough, even for DC's greatest. Watch as Batman and Catwoman, Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor, Mister Miracle and Big Barda, and all the rest of your OTPs fight in vain against the all-powerful forces of romance (and super-villains)! Even Amanda Waller fights the urge to bail on her mystery date. We guarantee that this Valentine's Day, someone's taking a shot to the heart—from Cupid's bow!

Andrew Wheeler, former EIC of Comics Alliance, No More Mutants Bleeding Cool columnist, and writer of comics such as Another Castle, Freelance, Wonder Woman was solicited to write he title, but is not on the creative lists. Previously, he tweeted out "For my next act, I have a story in the upcoming DC Valentine's Day anthology Love is a Battlefield. I'm working with an amazing artist to tell a really wonderful story, but I don't think I'm allowed to spill the details yet!" But it seems that he may never be able to spill them as he's not on the final creative list below;

But those who are now included are Oscar winner John Ridley, Christos Gage, Xermanico, Juan Gedeon, Rebekah Isaacs, Pop Mhan, Rob Guillory, Cavan Scott, Mark Russell, Nik Virella, Marquis Draper, Tim Seeley, Jonas Trindade, Karl Mostert, Pornsak Pichetshote and Amancay Nahuelpan. Here's how it all breaks down, and who is getting what – and whom.

It may also be notable that the Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy by Tim Seeley and Rebekah Isaacs is called "The Beginning". Could this be the early days of their courtship?
