“Dottie’s Lament” by Sue Bower won an honorable mention at the 2016 Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza.
A few months back I announced that Sue Bower took a panel of art from the First Kiss comic book series (with my permission) and turned it into a quilt. A professional quilter, Sue used the art, but came up with new dialogue—very much in the spirit of Last Kiss.
I just learned that Sue’s “Dottie’s Lament” received an honorable mention ribbon at the 2016 Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza. Congrats, Sue.
Since the legendary Carl Barks died in 2000, you might wonder…
How did Daan Jippes and I collaborate with Barks on a new story, “Gyro’s Manager” that was published by IDW just a few weeks ago in Uncle Scrooge #17?
Well, it turns out that Carl left behind a few partially completed stories. And, I’m happy to say, I’ve gotten to complete several of them for my publisher Egmont. “Gyro’s Manager” is the latest to finally see print here in the U.S.
(By the way, many thanks to fan Paul Green for letting me know that the story was in US #17. If not for Paul, I would’ve missed it entirely!
Available in Black or Pink.

I really enjoy meeting fans at shows. Here I am at the Prism Comics booth with Jennifer Burke Haines—who loves Last Kiss zombies gags with a shambling, walking dead passion!
This is the second year in a row that I’ve gone to Comic-Con International without a booth of my own. But 2016 was the year that I really found a home at Prism Comics. (Last year, I was just at Prism briefly each day to do signings.)
Overall, I think it worked out great.
Hoards of fans came to the giant Prism booth. More than I might’ve seen if I’d had a Last Kiss booth on my own. And, I have to say, it was a lot easier (and cheaper!) to display there as just one of many creators at the booth.
Plus, the Prism folks were incredibly nice and fun to hang with!
