Strange Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Few pieces of Last Kiss art have been used as much—and have evolved as much—as the art in today’s comic. Many thanks to my pal Mike Pascale for continuing to find new ways to tweak and transform this vintage panel.

Art by Vince Colletta Studio from the story “Hope Never Dies” in FIRST KISS #29, 1962.

Oh, Baby!

Today's Last Kiss comic

This comic that mischievous Mike Pascale and I created back in 2014 is one of my favorite Valentine’s Day gags. But tomorrow we’ll have a brand new cupid comic that’s twice as outrageous!

The vintage comic art that today's Last Kiss used as a basis.

Art by Vince Colletta Studio from the story “Condemned” in FIRST KISS #40, 1965.
