Lisa’s Enduring Legacy

posted on September 5, 2019

This Saturday will mark the fifth annual Funky Winkerbean 5K put on by the Mentor Rotary for the benefit of the Lisa’s Legacy Fund. The weather should be beautiful with just a nip of Fall in the air. It’s great run, a great course put on by great folks. So if you’re a runner, or a walker, you’ll be able to get your run in early and still have your Saturday ahead of you. Hope to see you there.

Some moments from my appearance at Rubber City Comics.

First and most important of all there were snacks. They know their cartoonists.

A cool and well stocked store in which to hang-out.

And the fans. One was a veteran of the Iraq war whose Crankshaft book was blown-up when a lobber hit his Humvee (I hope I’m not the only one who notices the irony there) so we fixed him up with a brand new one. Another fan brought his worn but still together copy of the very first Funky Winkerbean book to be signed, and I got to draw the old young Funky again. Oh, and did I mention the pizza? They really do know their cartoonists. All in all, Rubber City Comics is a great place to spend a Saturday afternoon, and, if you’re in the Akron area, you definitely owe it to yourself check it out.
