New Diet? It’s a No Brainer!

Although the dialogue is brand new, I first used this art in 2010. That was the year Mike Pascale and I started doing Halloween comics together. Eventually we branched out into doing Thanksgiving, Christmas and holidays comics. But this art was in that first 2010 batch.

Happy 12th Creative Anniversary, Mike!

BANNER: The Loves of Abby Amour

CAPTION: Abby answers your questions!

LONG CAPTION: Dearest Abby:

Your hair and eye color keep changing in the
comics. Who’s responsible for this foul up?
—-Nuts About You

Dear Nuts:
No one! The Last Kiss team never makes mistakes!

For example, the recent radiation
leaks at the Last Kiss Mansion
were all planned and totally safe.

(Many of our employees aren’t
even suing us. And they’re
expected to live happy, healthy
lives for months. Maybe even
years!)

By the way, radiation is also the cause for my
constantly changing hair and eye colors. According to Last Kiss head honcho John Lustig, it’s because
I was bitten by a radioactive beautician. I don’t
remember it. But why would John (and his attorney)
lie to me?
