Mistletoe Bliss

Original Vintage Art & Text

Art by Vince Colletta Studio in the story “Made for Romance” in FIRST KISS #4, 1958. Click link to read the entire issue of the original comic–for free.

Note: The expression on the woman’s face in the original art didn’t match the gag. So I replaced her face with another image of her from elsewhere in the story. With Photoshop almost all things are possible!
