Tough Dad, Rough Drive

Happy Father’s Day?

I hope it is for you. I know it’ll be happy for me since this it’s the first Father’s Day since my daughter and her hubby have moved here to Seattle. I love ’em both dearly!

(Hint: Don’t get me a tie, kids—unless it’s super classy and glows-in-the dark.)

Special thanks to my pal Mike Pascale for the offbeat gag in today’s comic.

Art by Art Saaf & Mike Peppe from the story “Kiss and Run” in NEW ROMANCES #14, 1952.
