Flag Day 2020

Happy Flag Day—sort of.

There’s no vintage art this time. Diego drew this from scratch—two versions. One flag upright. The other flag upside down.

The upside down one (with the dour dialogue you see in today’s comic) was for a Bucky animation project that Bucky co-creator Jack Enyart and I were pitching. It was a pretty downbeat moment for the usually upbeat Bucky.

I wasn’t planning to use this gag in the Last Kiss webcomic. But this seems like an appropriate time for it.

(Dialogue by my much-missed pal, the late Jack Enyart.)
