Last Kiss Goes Hollywood—Again


So, Shelagh and I were watching Mom—one of our favorite shows—last week and saw a Last Kiss tote bag in the above scene.. Much screaming (for joy) ensued. My thanks to the amazing John Fluke of Placed4Success Product Placement. This is just one of dozens of times John’s gotten Last Kiss on TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory; Mike and Molly; and Scream.

By the way, Anna Faris (Christine) didn’t really say anything about the tote bag behind her on the show. That was just me having some fun. (But I’m sure she was thinking it.)

 

The Last Kiss Caffeine tote is available in my Etsy Store.

 

Interview with Last Kiss Creator Launches Romance Site

To read the interview with John Lustig, go to https://www.romancedailynews.com

I’m head-over-heals in love with the fact that I’m the first person to be interview by RomanceDailyNews.com
 
The new site (launched July 17, 2018) features all things romantic. And what could be more romantic than me and Last Kiss? In fact, in addition to the interview, my Last Kiss comics are a regular feature on the site.
 
In addition to romance in general, the site will also act as a review and news site for the romance novel industry. Free romance e-books, interviews with romance writers, horoscopes (with a romantic emphasis), romance news events, and more are all featured on the site.

 

 

Where & When to Find Me at Comic-Con International

Here’s the Prism Comics crew at the 2016 Comic-Con. I’m the old fart…uh, handsome guy in the green Last Kiss shirt.

During this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the easiest place to find me will be Prism Comics. The Prism booth is #2144 in Hall C. I’ll be signing almost everything anyone sets in front of me—except blank checks!—and selling lots of new Last Kiss goodies.

Here are the times I’ll be in Prism’s Booth #2144:

Thursday, July 19, 1-3 p.m.

Friday, July 20, 12-2 p.m.

Saturday, July 21, 12-2 p.m.

Sunday, July 22, 1-3  p.m. (And maybe a bit longer!)

World Famous Comics:

I’ll also be bopping in at the World Famous Comics (Booth #5560 in Hall G) at least once a day where I’ve also got some fun, new Last Kiss goodies for sale. No set times for that, though. So, if you want to reach me at end of the building, ask or leave a message with one of the incredibly talented World Famous folks: Justin Chung, Spencer Brinkerhoff III, and Kristy & Brian Miller.

Beware, San Diego! I’m Back for Comic-Con Again!

But I’ll visiting both the World Famous Comics booth (#5560) and the Prism Comics booth (#2144) each day. And both are selling my Last Kiss goodies. I’ll be doing at least two signings at the Prism Comics booth.

No San Diego Comic-Con for Me—This Year

The best thing about going to Comic-Con is catching up with friends—such as my pals Mike and Lisa Pascale. This year I have to pass, but I’ll be back next year!

I first attended the San Diego Comic-Con—now renamed “Comic-Con International—in 1974. And I’ve gone most years since then.

But I’m skipping the con this year.

Instead, I’m staying home to work on a book. I’m not ready to talk about the book yet. (Call it the “Mystery Project” for now.) But I’m tremendously excited about it. And, in order to find time to write it, I need to cut something from my schedule. So <Sob!> I’m cutting Comic-Con this year.

Next year, though, I plan to be back!

Heading to Atlanta for the RT Booklover’s Con, May 3-5

Me with a closeup of one of the new full-color shirts I’ll be selling at the RT Booklover’s Convention in Atlanta, May 3-5.

For the third time in four years, I’ll have a vendor’s table at the RT Booklover’s Convention. This time the con (for romance writer’s and fans) will be in Atlanta.  This’ll be my first visit to Atlanta. So when not at the con, I’ll be touristing the heck out of the city!

The Gay Deception

Double click the page to enlarge it.

Earlier this week I posted a Last Kiss comic that used art from the opening panel of “The Gay Deception.” Although I’ve posted individual panels from this story several times, I got an interesting response this time. I started getting requests from fans who wanted to read the whole story.

And so…

Originally drawn by the Vince Colletta Studio for FIRST KISS #8 (1959), this tale was almost certainly written by Joe Gill and it has a plot that has repeatedly shown up in romance comics and rom-com movies through the ages: The fake date! Or is it really a fake?

So here it is. I hope you enjoy it. Please double click the images to enlarge them.
