posted on March 31, 2022

Here are the first two Funky dailies along with some strips that were on the comics pages that day.

Funky’s 50th – Lisa’s Story

posted on March 30, 2022

The late nineties were a time of weddings as Les and Lisa got married in 1996, and Funky and Cindy tied the knot in 1998.

In 2007, Lisa lost her battle with cancer. The Lisa’s Story arc was a Pulitzer Finalist. The was another time jump for the characters, and and the daughters and sons of the original Funky cast were now the new kids in school.

Once again my core characters leapt forward in time to their middle age.

The above can be found in The Complete Funky Winkerbean Volume 9, Lisa’s Story, and The Lisa’s Legacy Trilogy.

The arrival of 1992 saw the Funky gang make comics history again by graduating from high school and jumping forward in time to their young adult lives.

A chalk talk circa the 90’s.

The year 1995 saw the strip deal with the subject of teen suicide to the same overwhelming response from readers.
