Some of those other stories included Lisa defending John Howard, the owner of the Komix Korner, when he was sued for selling obscene comic books. Funky’s cousin Wally and his struggles with PTSD upon returning from Afghanistan, and later his return to Afghanistan with his wife Becky as part of a project to clear landmines. Young love, old love. Marriages, Funky’s second to Holly and Wally and Becky’s, both taking place in Montoni’s, the pizzeria palace of passion. Graduations, babies being born, and even the building of a new school. Life.
