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!

It’s Always Bucky™
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
SCENE: Bucky in his scout outfit stands, salutes and flies an American Flag.
CAPTION: Happy Flag Day!

my sister’s underwear!
It’s Always Bucky™
