Playing Cupid? It’s a Contact Sport!

Happy Valentine’s Day from me, Tony Isabella & Allen Freeman!

By the way, have you ever wanted to meet Last Kiss contributor (and all-around swell guy) Tony Isabella? Then you’re in luck. Tony will be a guest at Pensacon (Feb. 18-20.) So drop by Tony’s Artist Alley table and tell him how much you enjoy his work. Rumor has it that he’s written a few thousand other brilliant comics besides Last Kiss!

Original Vintage Art & Text

Art by Vince Colletta from the story “Lucky Liz” in FIRST KISS #9, 1959. (The rest of this comic isn’t online. So there’s no link this time.)

MAN: We have to do something different for Valentine’s Day.
