Siren Sex

Here’s another updated comic from the days when I did Last Kiss for Comics Buyer’s Guide. Note: The two original art panels (below) are from the same story, but were taken from different pages of that story.

Art by Vince Colletta Studio from the story “Jealousy” in First Kiss #14, 1960.

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.

Going Postal

Later this week, I’ll have a new Valentine’s Day cartoon that I cooked up with my pal Mike Pascale. But for now, here’s a slightly updated Valentine’s Day comic from the Last Kiss comic book series—way back in 2002.

And here’s the original 1962 published art:
