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.

  1. Well, so much for Lola! But I suppose with a name like that she doesn’t deserve a guy like Don. But he transferred his affections after only two dates; not to be trusted, is he?

    • Sure, Ricochet Romance! Hook up with a cheater, no problem, you’ll be able to change him! [NOT!]

  2. Thanks for posting the complete comic. It was as hilarious as I expected. I wonder if there was a sequel where Lola comes home…

    Don and Lola meet Gwen while walking down the street.

    Gwen: Don? Lola? Don, what’s going on?

    Don to Gwen: Hey Gwen. Thanks for keeping me satisfied while Lola was away. Since she’s back now I won’t need you anymore.

    Gwen to Don: Huh? Wha?

    Lola to Don: So who’s this?

    Don to Lola: Just some high school slut that filled in for you while you were on your trip.

    Lola to Don: Well, I hope you didn’t catch anything from her.

    Gwen, as Lola and Don walk away: Huh? Wha?
