June is Gay Pride Month. So this seemed like a good way to start off the month. I’ll be running other LGBTQ-themed gags about once a week during June.

By the way, this is the first time I’ve posted this comic on the web. But I actually created it last year and turned it into a fridge magnet for the San Diego Comic-Con. Sales at the Prism Comics booth were…well, super!

 

Art by Gill Fox from the cover of Crack Comics #26, Nov. 1942.
