Comics to the Rescue

This is another one of the Last Kiss comics I originally created for Comics Buyer’s Guide way back when. This is the first time it’s ever appeared on the web. First time in color too!

Art by Charles Nicholas & Vince Alascia from the story Judy and the Dude in Career Girl Romances #64, 1971.

 

Transcript:

CAPTION: Your car breaks down on a lonely dirt road…miles from anywhere! No food! No cell phone! No Tivo! All you have are your wits…and your comic books (because you’d never leave home without them.) How do you survive?

A. You read your comics for inspiration and come up with a brilliant plan! Alas, it involves time travel and moving the Earth out of orbit. So you die!

B. You alert Superman with your emergency signal watch! You’re saved!

C. Oops! You forgot to put new batteries in the watch! You die!

D. You (reluctantly!) ask your girlfriend for advice. She fixes the car in 10 seconds with some
chewing gum. You’re saved!

E. You decide it’s all a dream! So it won’t matter if you ignore everything and keep reading comics until…you die!

SCENE: Man and woman cuddling and enjoying a campfire.

MAN: Wow! This is great! How did you get the fire going?

WOMAN: I used your comics for kindling!
