The holidays are always fun—if you discount nosy relatives, stressful family gatherings, and the inevitable question “Were you naughty or nice this year?” Well, most people would say they were nice, but John Lustig’s Last Kiss shines a light on the absurdity of such a question. Using art from the classic 50s- and 60s-era comic strip First Kiss, Lustig adds his own witty observations on the futility of family functions, and the hilarity that comes along with the holiday seasons in his new e-book original collection. Of course, it wouldn’t be the end of the world, as we know it, without a few zombies thrown in for good measure.
