Father’s Day? Dance!

I’m making a temporary tweak to my usual Monday-Wednesday-Friday comics schedule. There won’t be a Monday comic so that I can actually run this Father’s Day gag on…Father’s Day.

Yes,  I know it’s shocking concept. But  I thought I’d give it a try.

Happy Father’s Day to me—and all the other dads out there!

Art by Dick Giordano from Romantic Story #70, Jan. 1964.

The cover teaser caption in the upper-left hand corner is impossible to read here, but it says: The date for my marriage to Chet Dillman was set! I loved Chet and wanted to be his wife, but…I was determined to have one last fling!

Scene: Man and woman dancing joyously.

MAN: You’re pregnant?
