Today's Last Kiss: Unhand Me

Here’s the first of two Tony Isabella-written comics (both hilarious!) that I’m running this week. The second will appear this Friday.

I mention this because the last time I ran two of Tony’s comics—instead of the usual one-a-week—I had a reader ask about my health. I appreciated that. And it was understandable. After all, when I announced Tony’s Last Kiss involvement back in mid-Sept., I also made a vague announcement about my having some health issues. And I explained that Tony was helping out because of this.

So, let me re-assure everyone that I’m doing okay. While I haven’t wanted to get into medical details (maybe later), I’m not suffering from anything life-threatening. And I’m probably doing slightly better than when I brought Tony into the Last Kiss fold.

The fact that I’m using one, two, three or none of Tony’s gags in any given week has nothing to do with the ups or downs of my health.

Plus, I’m totally enjoying Tony’s take on Last Kiss. While he’s embracing the spirit of what I’ve done over the last couple of decades, he’s also bring his own unique approach. And I think that just makes Last Kiss stronger and better.
