Turkey Turmoil

Happy Thanksgiving!

At the risk of being serious, I’ve got to say that I am insanely grateful to everyone who reads Last Kiss. Knowing that so many of you share my twisted sense of humor make it all worthwhile.

I also want to give a big thanks to my Pilgrim-painting pal Mike Pascale for today’s art and the basic idea for the gag. As soon as I read it, I said, “Wow! That’s no turkey!”

Meanwhile, back in 1962…
See the original 1962 art and dialogue for today’s Last Kiss webcomic here.

A few of the many things I’m thankful for:

—spicy food.

—spicy women (especially my wife, Shelagh.)

—My pal Mike Pascale who once again has spiced up some old romance art—turning it into a fun holiday gag.

—My (spicy?) and very loyal readers. Thank you! I hope you all have wonderful Thanksgivings.

How Thanksgiving Really Started

More holiday zaniness from guest genius Mike Pascale.

By the way, Mike is an avid football fan—particularly when it comes to the Seattle Seahawks.

If you suffer from a similar affliction, then check out his Seahawks webcomic on Facebook–-Game BUZZ.

To the right is the art as it originally appeared in First Kiss #38 (1964.)
