Today's Last Kiss comic

Oh, Baby!

Today's Last Kiss comic

This comic that mischievous Mike Pascale and I created back in 2014 is one of my favorite Valentine’s Day gags. But tomorrow we’ll have a brand new cupid comic that’s twice as outrageous!

The vintage comic art that today's Last Kiss used as a basis.

Art by Vince Colletta Studio from the story “Condemned” in FIRST KISS #40, 1965.

A Tasteful Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day from me and my pal (& frequent collaborator) Mike Pascal.

I’m not sure why Mike and I keep coming up with zombie LK comics for V. Day. We’ve also done a fair amount of Cupid gags for the holiday. Hmm. I can see where this is going and—no, Mike, we’re not a doing zombie Cupid comic next year!

(Unless, of course it’s very, very funny—and tasteful.)

Art by Dick Giordano from the story “My Secret” in First Kiss #27, Aug. 1962.

Going Postal

Later this week, I’ll have a new Valentine’s Day cartoon that I cooked up with my pal Mike Pascale. But for now, here’s a slightly updated Valentine’s Day comic from the Last Kiss comic book series—way back in 2002.

And here’s the original 1962 published art:
