Put on Your Boots! It’s Father’s Day!

Unlike poor Bucky’s dad, I expect to have a great Father’s Day. For the first time in many years, my daughter Caitie and I won’t be in different states on Father’s Day and can spend the day together. Hoo haw!

Fancy Flag Day

Fancy Flag Day

Unlike most Last Kiss comics, this one isn’t based on vintage comic art. Instead, Diego Jourdan Pereira drew this from scratch and features Bucky—a character inspired by mid-20th Century TV shows such as LEAVE IT TO BEAVER.

Bucky—created by Jack Enyart and me for an animation project—has appeared many times before here. And he’ll be showing up again later this week in a special Father’s Day comic.  (Hopefully, Bucky’s dad will survive his Father’s Day surprise.)—John

Failing Sex Ed

Failing Sex Ed

It’s been awhile since I posted any comics inspired by IT’S ALWAYS BUCKY—the proposed animated series that Jack Enyart and I are working on. Rather than Bucky himself, today’s comic features Paley…Bucky’s best buddy. Paley’s the weird-kid-down-the-street (every neighborhood has one) who’s looking for trouble—and usually finds it!
