I’m happy to announce that Esther Stutzman won the most recent Couple-Up contest!

Esther wasn’t the only person to submit an arrow gag. Lots of people did variations of: “Is that an arrow in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?”

But Esther was the first to submit to submit a version of the arrow gag and—I believe—hers was the most cleverly worded.

Esther will receive a high-quality print of the contest comic with her name and dialogue lettered into the art. The print will be autographed by me. She’ll also receive 10 Last Kiss note or greeting cards as well as a Last Kiss Sticky Notebook.”

Runners Up

I’m also sending well-deserved Runner Up prizes (5 Last Kiss note cards) to:

Ste Beresford
Both: Why do I never get Wonder Woman in these key parties?

Ivan Henley
HER: You make me feel like a woman again!
HIM: Wait…. you’re a woman?!

Martin Tull
SHE: Oh my God, he had his tongue pierced.
HE: She wants me so bad I didn’t have time to finish my Skittles!

And Honorable Mentions go to:

Ed Bertoli
Her: Take me home and ravage me!
Him: I hope you’re not a screamer. Mom and dad are light sleepers.

Alex Corvino
BLACK CANARY: You kiss just like Green Lantern!
GREEN ARROW: So do you!

Chuck Kramer
HER: Moonlight, music, and you. What could make this moment any better?
HIM: (thought bubble): Kate Upton

Clint Neilson
HER: You’re not the man I thought you were…
HIM: Neither are you…

There were lots of other fun submissions. And the fact that I didn’t pick one of them doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy it.

In any event, everyone will have another chance to win in about three months when I host the next Couple-Up contest!
