Official Press Release

Last Kiss Inc. and Uclick are joining forces in a strategic alliance to distribute Last Kiss comics in the electronic marketplace.

Launching January 19th through the Uclick comics fansite GoComics.com, Last Kiss will appear every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as a webcomic with additional worldwide distribution via mobile wallpaper, comic collections, and animation.

Last Kiss cleverly combines old romance comic art with new, edgy dialogue by John Lustig, a veteran Disney writer. Lustig’s outrageous humor has made Last Kiss a favorite among comic fans. But its popularity has grown as it’s branched out into newspapers, greeting cards and other media.

“Spurred by the added exposure offered by the Uclick extensive network, John Lustig is giving Last Kiss a makeover. He’s tripling his output to make Last Kiss a three-times-per-week comic. With a new logo and a new LastKissInc.com design underway, Last Kiss is going to get a lot of attention from current and new readers,” states Jeanette Smith, President J’net Smith Inc., the exclusive representative for Last Kiss.

Uclick is the preeminent online cartoon content provider with more than a million unique monthly visitors. It packages and distributes more than 100 popular comics such as Ziggy and Garfield as well as puzzles, games and other features, to major consumer and news portals. Clients include Yahoo!, MSNBC.com, washingtonpost.com, CNN and hundreds of others.
