     Well, vaguely scaly men.  :)

     Well, I give away nothing major by pointing out that they consider it
more like fooling around.  2nd base at most.  They're kinda scared to try
"all the way", which would involve a complete merging.  But you won't see
anything about it in #63, unfortunately.
     But yes, thanks to the joy of metaphorical nookie, I've now shown
serious canoodling onscreen, rather than cutting away to howling wind or
whatnot.  :)

     Mike says KC and Confetti Girl are the only characters he hasn't
explicitly removed from the Looniverse.  But KC's appearance in LNHv2 is news
to him.  

     Dave Van Domelen, has a couple scenes of ASH #63 written, including
Peregryn's big fight scene.  Every scene in #63 takes place about the same
time, whee!
