Sick of Chicks?

Sick of Chicks?

Happy Easter from me and my frequent partner in Last Kiss hilarity Mike Pascale. Today’s Last Kiss is a composite image put together by Mike Pascale from two different comic books. So we have two sets of vintage art this time. See below.

SCENE: A sick man in a leather jacket and jeans is sitting on the ground--holding an empty Easter basket. Remnants of Peeps candy are on his mouth. A disapproving woman looks on from the foreground.

MAN (moaning): URRRP!

WOMAN: Feeling sick? Serves you right for eating all your marshmallow chicks!

MAN: <Groan> Not just my chicks!

WOMAN: <gasp> You ate mine too?!!

CAPTION: Afraid to answer...he didn’t make a peep!

The Secret to Hoppiness

The Secret to Hoppiness

This was just a silly idea I couldn’t resist. So I whipped up the image–combining some Last Kiss art with some clipart for the bunny as well as the background.

No, IHOP didn’t pay me (not even in pancakes) to do this. And Bunnies for Happiness isn’t a real thing. (But it should be.)

More Easter silliness this Sunday with a new Last Kiss!

My Fair Bunny

My Fair Bunny

Here’s the first of four Easter comics that I’ll be posting this week. This one written with my frequent partner in hilarity Mike Pascale.

Original Vintage Art & Text

Art by Ken Rice from the story “Too Smart for Love” in Ten-Story Love #204, Sept. 1955. Ace Magazines. Curious to see more? Click the link to read the entire vintage comic book.

↓ Transcript
CAPTION: The Easter Bunny is tired of sounding like an uncouth cottontail...and a boorish backwoods dumb bunny!

(Cruel people have even called him “hare-brained!”)

So he’s taking elocution lessons from that paragon of precise pronunciation: Eliza Do Little!

SCENE: The Easter Bunny is talking to a woman sitting at a desk.

EASTER BUNNY (singing): Randy rabbits rapidly race to rescue...rascal raccoons in Rio...from ransacking roadrunner robbers!

WOMAN: Good! Now sing it three times...backwards...while hopping...with your basket full of eggs!

1955 Art (of woman): Ken Rice Re-ink & Color: Diego Jourdan Pereira

How to Protect Your Easter Eggs

How to Protect Your Easter Eggs

Happy Easter from my frequent partner in comic book mirth Mike Pascale and me!

I should point out that the credits don’t tell the whole story here. Allen Freeman did color the woman in this image. But Mike Pascale colored everything else and significantly modified the art from its original romance comic look.

SCENE: A large, humanoid Easter Bunny has his back turned to us and is facing his wife (Mrs. Bunny.) In the background on shelves are a large number of Easter baskets. In each basket there's one Easter egg and one dollar.

MRS. BUNNY: See? our investments are safe! I made sure we don’t have all our eggs in one basket!

EASTER BUNNY (thinking): <Groan> This is what I get for marrying a beach bunny!
