Sexy Freedom

Happy Fourth of July–in advance!

Today’s gag is a revamp of a comic that Mike Pascale¬†and I did together years ago. In humor, when it comes to text, shorter is usually better. But I think this longer version does a better job of setting up the joke. I hope you enjoy it.

I’ll be back with a new comic for the actual Fourth of July.

Original Vintage Art & Text

Pencils by Dick Giordano (with inks by either Giordano or Vince Colletta) from the story “Letter from Long Ago” in FIRST KISS #6, 1958.
