Comics Kingdom - Funky Winkerbean Vintage -
A long-running Newspaper Comic strip, written and drawn by Tom Batiuk since In the beginning, this was a gag-per-day strip set at a High School. Funky Winkerbean was a happy-go-lucky student. In , Batiuk — figuring that two decades in high school was long enough — quite deliberately decided to initiate Cerebus Syndrome not that it was called that then : he ran a graduation storyline, and to indicate and hammer in the change of tone, he had the class overachiever commit suicide in the yearbook room after hearing that the position of valedictorian would be chosen by popularity, and after a brief standoff. Then we got Les Moore's valedictorian speech which is universally considered underwhelming , and then there was a Time Skip And then there was Angst : For every good thing that happened to the cast Funky married to Cindy, Les married to Lisa there were two bad things Funky is a divorced recovering alcoholic, Lisa died after a breast cancer relapse and one thing that was revealed to be worse than we thought Lisa's teen pregnancy retconned into date rape, Bull's Jerkass nature as a result of parental abuse. And then in , Batiuk decided there needed to be a second Time Skip to turn things over to the kids of the original cast.

Today, in , students are walking out of schools all over the country, and debates are raging over young people's voices in politics. Forty-six years ago this month, Tom Batiuk launched a comic strip that would go on to become an intergenerational story about the community that grows up around a high school, and looking back to those early years is like being able to travel back in time to learn how students then were just as concerned with the politics of the day. We're so excited to share Funky Winkerbean, from its beginning, with you in the Comics Kingdom vintage section. If you read Funky Winkerbean today, you may wonder what the adult cast was like when they were kids-- and here, you can see their origins as young people with many of the same hopes, dreams, and fears as young people now. Tackling issues from race and women's rights to sex ed in schools, Batiuk's teens of could be talking about the same problems teens talk about today, and reading his masterful view of the high school experience is a reminder that generation gaps aren't as wide as they seem.
