Last Kiss creator John Lustig is paying tribute to the late comics legend Dick Giordano with a special three-week sequence of his Last Kiss webcomic.
Starting today, the series will begin appearing six times a week instead of the usual three at both GoComics.com/lastkiss and lastkisscomic.com. Instead of his regular one-panel gags, Lustig will feature a multi-episode Last Kiss story which he and Giordano created together, entitled “Widow Miss Muffet.”
The “Widow” storyline will appear Monday through Friday. On Sundays, Last Kiss will feature special, standalone comics unrelated to “Widow,” but featuring Giordano art. The “Widow” story will wrap up on June 4.
“Dick drew ‘Widow’ for my Last Kiss comic book series and it hasn’t been reprinted since it appeared in 2001,” said Lustig. “For Dick it was a chance to have fun—returning to his romance comic roots. And it was a funny romance story—which I think was a first for him.
“It’s the story of a little girl who wants to grow up and become a rich widow. Of course, things don’t go quite as planned.”
