Today's Last Kiss Comic

May the Mask Be With You

Today's Last Kiss Comic

Seriously, wear a mask. Pretend you’re a super villain. (Or a superhero!) A bank robber. The Scarlet Pimpernel. (Or even better, the Daffy Duck version—The Scarlet Pumpernickel!) Whatever.
But wear a d*mn mask!

Something new!

Today, I don’t have any original art to share. So I thought it’d be fun to share an alternative version of today’s comic.

It’s not unusual for me to go through several different gags (and sometimes images) before I settle on what I like best. This one was vary close to what I wanted.
Heck, maybe this one should’ve been the one I went with. It’s always hard to say.

 

Transcript:

SCENE: Darth Vader with a starry, space background.

CAPTION: Wearing a mask doesn’t make you evil. But not wearing one…might!

CAPTION: May the Fourth Be With You!

Alternative Image:

Be like Darth Vader! Always wear a mask!
