On the Edge of Love

As some of you know, Bucky is the title character in an animated TV/comic book series (IT’S ALWAYS BUCKY) that writer Jack Enyart and I are shopping around.

By the way, Jack was featured on Station KHTS during it’s Friday Matinee interview and spent several minutes discussing Bucky and me. Here are the links for the video version:

Girls are Icky! Except…

I hope you like today’s comic character, Bucky—because I’ve got big plans for this kid.

Yes, he’s young and completely clueless about sex—unlike my usual, horny adult characters. But I think he’ll be an entertaining counterpoint to all that naked adult lust. So, I’m trying out Bucky as a semi-regular character—two to four times a month.

Longtime Last Kiss readers have seen him before. I ran a few Bucky gags back in late 2013-early 2014. And, he was so much fun, I kept thinking about bringing him back.

And why not? I know Bucky a lot better now.

He’s become the title character in an animated TV/comic book series (IT’S ALWAYS BUCKY) that writer Jack Enyart and I are shopping around.

Milkman Does Her Body? Good!

Today’s comic is another gag from my IT’S ALWAYS BUCKY animation project with writer Jack Enyart.

For those of you with dirty, minds (my sort of people!) I found this gag—one of the few really funny milk-themed photos that doesn’t (sorry) show a giant set of breasts.

Meanwhile, back in 1961…

In the pursuit of a gag, I occasionally ask my artists to make major changes to the original vintage art. But today’s comic has been through more and bigger changes than most!
