Here’s the first of this year’s two Christmas collaborations with my pal Mike Pascale. And for Christmas day? Mike and I have cooked up something sweeter than a Christmas sugar plum!

Unlike almost every other piece of Last Kiss art, today’s comic isn’t based on vintage comic art. Instead, it’s a gorgeous original by longtime Last Kiss colorist Allen Freeman. Thank you, Allen!
