Today's Last Kiss

Be Prepared

Today's Last Kiss

There’s no vintage art this time. Instead of basing this on old comic book art, Diego drew this for me from scratch. This was done a few years ago when Jack Enyart and I were pitching Bucky as an animation project.

Alas, unlike Bucky, TV producers weren’t “prepared for anything” and the series never got picked up.

Still, I like the character. So I’ll keep doing Bucky gags as the mood hits me and inspiration strikes.

 

 

Transcript:

SCENE: Bucky, dressed as a Boy Scout, is standing, holding an American flag in his left hand and saluting with his right hand.

BUCKY: As a scout, I’m prepared for anything…except broccoli…and girls!

Thankful for a Friend

(Left to right) Jack Enyart , John Lustig, Shelagh Lustig, Kay Enyart during a meal in L.A. last year.

I recently learned that my pal and sometimes co-conspirator in silliness Jack Enyart died. He passed away from pancreatic cancer on Oct. 13.

A writer, artist and occasional actor-performer, Jack had a long career in comics (Disney, Warner-DC, Marvel); cartooning (Penthouse, Playgirl among others) and animation (DuckTales, Fraggle Rock and many others.)

I’d known Jack for a dozen or more years and for the last several I’d gotten to know him better because we had been working—on and off—on a pet project that we were hoping to turn into an animated series, It’s Always Bucky. As an offshoot of that project, red-headed Bucky had numerous appearances in Last Kiss comics.

Jack and I came close to getting an animated deal a couple of times, but after awhile the project became secondary to me. What was more important was the pleasure of working with Jack and getting to know him better.

Jack was—for lack of a better term—a character. Charming, quick-witted, always upbeat and very funny. I will miss him and his stories!

If you’re interested in knowing more, there’s a nice remembrance of Jack on Mark Evanier’s site. Plus here a link to a great video interview with Jack.
