Psychic Romance In Your Future

In case anyone’s keeping track, this is the third of three aviation gags I’ve done over the last week. This seemed like a good place to stop!

WOMAN: It’s true! I can see the future…us together deeply in love…in two minutes…in a little room marked “Occupied!”

Instant Old Friends

Speaking of old friends, my pal Ed Smith gave me an incredible birthday present today (Jan. 25.) For the last few centuries–I exaggerate only slightly–he’s been working on a Last Kiss animated cartoon.

But no more. Today, the cartoon is officially finished.

It’s just a few minutes of fun with Flash-style animation, but–holy exclamation marks, I’m excited about this!!!

Ed came up with some great gags and visuals that really moved my story along. And actress/pal Sharon Parker’s reading of the line “Oh, I like it!” may be the sexist thing I’ve heard since my wife said “I do.”

It’ll be at least a week (probably two) before I post the animation on the web. (Hey, I’ve got press releases to write and bloggers to blackmail first.)

But I promise to have the cartoon up and running in time for the traditional Last Kiss national holiday–St. Valentine’s Day!

Steal My Heart? No Problem!

WOMAN: You can steal my heart! But hands off my credit cards!

Under Where? Not There!

Cartoon Hunt Contest!

Does this art look familiar? It should. I’ve used it before. But last time one of the characters looked, well…a bit less healthy.

I thought it’d be fun to see how long it takes my readers to find the previous comic in my archive. So I’m giving away a prize.

The first person who finds the comic and posts a link in the comment section of my site here wins five Last Kiss greeting cards. (If you have trouble posting a link then at least post the date and name of the comic.)

SCENE: Man is behind a woman and calls out because he recognizes--although he can't see her face. She looks surprised.

MAN: Hey, I recognize you!

WOMAN: Gee! Did I forget to wear underwear again?
