Lisa's Story: The Other Shoe

A story from the comic strips that will make you laugh and cry. Originally a “gag-a-day” comic strip that portrayed life in high school, Funky Winkerbean evolved into a mature series of real-life stories. In 1999, Lisa Moore, one of Funky’s friends and a main character, discovered she had breast cancer. Lisa’s Story: The Other Shoe is a collection of both the 1999 comic strips on Lisa’s initial battle with cancer and the current series examining her struggle with the disease and its outcome.

The Last Leaf: Lisa’s Story Concludes

To be published simultaneously with Prelude: Lisa’s Story Begins, The Last Leaf: Lisa’s Story Concludes is the sequel after Lisa’s death from breast cancer in Lisa’s Story: The Other Shoe. The Last Leaf recounts how Les and family cope with Lisa’s death and continue their lives. Creator Tom Batiuk brings Lisa back in Les’s imagination, and she helps him work out difficulties and decisions in his life and in the life of their daughter Summer. Fans will recognize Batiuk’s gentle mix of humor and more serious real-life themes that heighten the reader’s interest.
