Welcome to LepreCon

Welcome to LepreCon

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from me and my partner in today’s comic shenanigans—Mike Pascale.

In addition to transforming a guy in a striped suit (see first panel below) into a leprechaun, Mike provided today’s “lepre-con” pun.

By the way, today’s comic is a mashup of two panels from FIRST KISS Comics. See below.

Art by the Vince Colletta Studio from FIRST KISS #8, 1959.
