Happy Presidents’ Day from me and mischievous Mike Pascale. (View the original 1958 art below to see how thoroughly Mike modified it for today’s comic.)
By the way, Abe Lincoln is my favorite president. Tragic and witty, he’s also easily our most quotable commander-in chief:
“If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?”
“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Art by John Tartaglione from the story “The Sea Green Eyes!” in FIRST KISS #5, 1958.
SCENE: Woman talking to President Abe Lincoln / Abraham Lincoln.
WOMAN: Abe Lincoln in a Last Kiss comic? Why?!! Don’t you have better things to do?
Lincoln: I had some free time between Presidents’ Day sales!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
My heartfelt thanks—but no “Candy” or “Roses”—to my pal Mike Pascale who came up with today’s joke.
Mike also did a masterful job of modifying the original art. I think this is the first time Mike has ever added cleavage to any Last Kiss characters.
Normally, of course, neither of us would ever think of sullying Last Kiss with <gasp!> sex. But it made the joke funnier. So, what could we do?

MAN (to girlfriend or wife): You wanted Candy and flowers for Valentine’s Day, so…
SECOND WOMAN: Hi! I’m Candy!
THIRD WOMAN: I’m Rose!
