Breast Thanksgiving Ever!

I’ll be posting a new Thanksgiving comic tomorrow. But today’s comic is a golden oldie from the ancient past—of 2014. Mike Pascale and I have teamed up on a lot of holiday gags over the years. This is one of my favorites.

 

Original Art & Dialogue

Artist Unknown. From the story “The Love that Failed” in FIRST KISS #25, 1962

 

 

SCENE: Pilgrim man talking to a Pilgrim woman who has her hand over her face in disbelief at what he’s saying.

PILGRIM MAN: But…you said to “grab a breast!”

PILGRIM WOMAN: I meant the turkey’s…not my sister’s!

Halloween Treat

I figured yesterday’s comic was going to my last Halloween gag this year. But then this idea popped into my head a couple of hours ago. And I already had the perfect art for it thanks to my pal Mike Pascale. So…I went for it. Happy Halloween!

Art by John Tartaglione from the story “The Sea Green Eyes!” from First Kiss #5, 1958.

Green Passion

Many thanks to my pal Mike Pascale for transforming the original art (below) into a fantastic horror-themed, romance comic for Halloween. The basic gag is also by Mike. (I just make a small tweak to the dialogue.)

By sheer coincidence, Mike submitted the gag just a couple of weeks after Shelagh and I went “green” and got a three-year lease on an all-electric car–a 2020 Chevy Bolt. (Rumor has it that Frankenstein’s Monster has already gotten the 2021 model.)

Art by Dick Giordano with possible assist by Vince Colletta. From the story “Letter from Long Ago” in FIRST KISS #6, 1958.

↓ Transcript
SCENE: Frankenstein's Monster and a young woman are talking as a lightning storm rages in the background. The Monster's face is glowing green.

MONSTER: I hear you're into "green energy!"

WOMAN: Wanna make some sparks?

Easter’s So Over

Today's Last Kiss comic

There’s no original art this time because the comic uses several different pieces of art for this Last Kiss. But multi-talented Mike Pascale’s bunny art was the most crucial piece.

Thanks, Mike!
