 In 1986 the character Lisa became pregnant while in high school. The response to those four short seminal weeks was greater than any I had received up to that point. There were so many requests for copies of that series that we put together a special booklet collecting the strips, Life’s Lessons Aren’t Always Learned in the Classroom, and sent out more than sixty thousand copies. When the requests continued to come in, we had to go back for a second printing.

The story and the context surrounding it can all be found in The Complete Funky Winkerbean Vol.5

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.

The entire story can be found in The Complete Funky Winkerbean Volume 7.
