Practice Surgery

Happy Halloween, ghouls and boils!

Here’s the wrap up to the Halloween photo-comics. Starting Wednesday, we’re back to “old comics with new dialogue” three times a week.

 

However, I’d love to do more photo-comics occasionally. So, if you’ve enjoyed this last week (or hated it), please let me know.

 

In the meantime, my thanks to Allen Freeman and models Felina Vie and Caitlin Litzinger for the visual tricks and treats!
Zombody to Watch Over Me

Zombody to Watch Over Me

This is—by far—the most widely seen Last Kiss comic of all time. It appeared on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Many thanks to Mike Pascale for the goofy gag—and the gore.

His Last Kiss

His Last Kiss

It wouldn’t be Halloween without a Last Kiss collaboration with my pal Mike Pascale. This one and the one tomorrow are re-runs of two of the best zombie comics we’ve done together. But there’s a new zombie gag coming from Mike in a little over a week—just before the election!
