Dad Has a Monster of a Problem

Dialogue by Tony Isabella–pastor of The First Church of Godzilla (Reform), the one true church of the Great Scaly One.

Art by Charles Nicholas & Vince Alascia from the story “Homecoming” in Gorgo #4, Nov. 1961.

Some of the dialogue from the original art has dropped out. As near as I can tell, here’s what the man says: Go ahead and look, ugly! Don’t get gay with me or I’ll smack you in the eye!

Father’s Day? Dance!

I’m making a temporary tweak to my usual Monday-Wednesday-Friday comics schedule. There won’t be a Monday comic so that I can actually run this Father’s Day gag on…Father’s Day.

Yes,  I know it’s shocking concept. But  I thought I’d give it a try.

Happy Father’s Day to me—and all the other dads out there!

Art by Dick Giordano from Romantic Story #70, Jan. 1964.

The cover teaser caption in the upper-left hand corner is impossible to read here, but it says: The date for my marriage to Chet Dillman was set! I loved Chet and wanted to be his wife, but…I was determined to have one last fling!

 

Transcript:

Scene: Man and woman dancing joyously.

MAN: You’re pregnant?

WOMAN: Yup! Happy Father’s Day!

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.
