My sister (Lisa Hernandez) has been a major help with my Last Kiss business. She has more business acumen—and more commonsense—than silly, impractical me. And she often helps me out at comic conventions.
But it never occurred to me that my sweet sis would want to write a Last Kiss comic. And it seemed even less likely that my cat-loving, zombie-hating sister would ever make a joke about a mangled feline. But…geez, what do I know?
Hey, Lisa. Got any vampire cat gags?
