John Lustig

John Lustig has written hilariously silly comics for Disney, Marvel, Viz and more, though he is best known for his Last Kiss comics.
Last Kiss began when Lustig bought the publishing rights to something that no one else seemed to want–an old Charlton Comics series called First Kiss. The cost? $400 for the entire 40-issue series.
Lustig began rewriting the panels–replacing the often-absurd romance dialogue with his even more absurd humor. Since 2009, Lustig’s Last Kiss has been a web comic on
Before comics ruined his brain, Lustig was a reporter–covering everything from mass murders to school lunch menus. (Thankfully, never in the same article.)
In 2001, Cartoonist Northwest presented Lustig with its highest award, the Golden Toonie. He lives in Seattle with his wife and a giant, insane cat.
