How Thanksgiving Really Started

More holiday zaniness from guest genius Mike Pascale.

By the way, Mike is an avid football fan—particularly when it comes to the Seattle Seahawks.

If you suffer from a similar affliction, then check out his Seahawks webcomic on Facebook–-Game BUZZ.

To the right is the art as it originally appeared in First Kiss #38 (1964.)

On the right is the original First Kiss #4 art from 1958. If something looks a little off it’s because I gave the Last Kiss version a head transplant.

No, I didn’t dig up the head from a graveyard. I stole this beauty from elsewhere in the story.

It’s by the same artist and features the same character.  But, to me, it’s a better head.

Is this wrong? A perversion of art, science and Photoshop? Absolutely!

But what could I do?

It’s always hard to turn down good head.

Okay, maybe one of those ladies doesn’t technically exist in our universe.

But in a galaxy far, far away Madonna is as real as Imperial Death Stars and Jar Jar Binks!

Looks like porn, but…

I’m not into porn. I’m into erotica. The difference? Erotica sounds way cooler.

Or to badly paraphrase U.S. Supreme Court Judge Potty Stewart, “I can’t define porn. But I know it when I see it…Maybe not the first time. But after eight or nine replays—I’m pretty sure!”


Right is the original First Kiss art from 1961. Click on image to enlarge.
