It’s been awhile since I posted any comics inspired by IT’S ALWAYS BUCKY—the proposed animated series that Jack Enyart and I are working on. Rather than Bucky himself, today’s comic features Paley…Bucky’s best buddy. Paley’s the weird-kid-down-the-street (every neighborhood has one) who’s looking for trouble—and usually finds it!

PALEY: it’s not my fault I didn’t pass sex ed! my teacher didn’t accept my alternative facts!

Remember, kids! Getting turned on by fruit, vegetables or small household appliances doesn’t mean you’re a bad person. But we’ll punish you anyway–just to play it safe!
Art by the Vince Colletta Studio from the story “Kid Sister Blues” in FIRST KISS #31, 1963.
SCENE: A young woman eating a carrot in the kitchen talks to her mother.
MOTHER: I don’t care what you learned in school! In my house it’s a carrot! Not a phallic symbol!

To create the look I wanted for today’s comic, I mooshed together two pieces of old art. Both were colored by Allen Freeman. I hope you like the results.
Art by the Vince Colletta Studio from the story “A Bouquet of Roses” in FIRST KISS #20, 1961.
Art by Charles Nicholas & Sal Trapani from the story “Good Ole Joe” in FIRST KISS #1, 1957.
SCENE: A woman teacher talks to two students---one male and the other female.
TEACHER: No drinking or sex in class! use the parking lot…like everyone else!
