The Complete Funky Winkerbean  Volume 9  1996 1998

Balancing humor with sensitivity to tell stories we need to hear Funky Winkerbean, a newspaper staple since 1972, is one of the few comic strips that allows its characters to grow and age. With this ninth volume of the collected Funky Winkerbean, containing strips from 1996-1998, time continues to pass and events take place that will forever alter the lives of the core characters, even as new characters take the stage with stories to tell. Tom Batiuk's narrative humor style now grows to encompass such diverse events as retirement, weddings, the treatment of immigrants, dating abuse, and post office bombings. Some of the stories can be told over a cup of coffee, while others require a full-on Roman feast. As the stories become more universal, the humor in Funky continues to become an integral part of the ongoing narrative.
