The Secret Ingredient

The Secret Ingredient

This comic has a bit of history. When it originally ran in 2010, the punchline was that the final secret ingredient was “1,300 tablespoons of rum!” But I had a request from The Dayton City Paper—which runs Last Kiss every week—for a comic to go with it’s cover story about marijuana.

So, I dug out this comic off and made a minor change. Hence my humor this time is even “dopier” than usual.

Art by the Vince Colletta Studio from the story “Girl Meets Boy” in FIRST KISS #11, 1959.
