A Tasteful Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day from me and my pal (& frequent collaborator) Mike Pascal.

I’m not sure why Mike and I keep coming up with zombie LK comics for V. Day. We’ve also done a fair amount of Cupid gags for the holiday. Hmm. I can see where this is going and—no, Mike, we’re not a doing zombie Cupid comic next year!

(Unless, of course it’s very, very funny—and tasteful.)

Art by Dick Giordano from the story “My Secret” in First Kiss #27, Aug. 1962.
