Greetings, folks, BChasm back for another round. Today’s strip was not available for preview. Based on John’s sad expression on Saturday, I’ll hazard the guess that John will take this week (and probably next) to extol the virtues and magnificence of comic books. This will help Cory see the light and he’ll decide to keep and treasure the Starbuck Jones collection his mother took a year or two to complete.
However, as always has to be pointed out, this is Funky Winkerbean we’re talking about. While unfolding, the stories ooze like molasses, but when a story-shift needs to occur, it will happen with blinding speed. So we may get a week of band members selling frozen turkeys, or Funky at the gym.
Of course, we might get a week of Lisa Fun Run strips, as we haven’t had much Lisa in a couple of weeks. And that may tie us into Cory. As many (including myself) have pointed out, selling the Starbuck Jones collection would be a way for Cory to repay the eleven dollars he stole from the Lisa Fund way back when*. And as the Army had turned Punk Cory into Saint Cory, this has no doubt been gnawing at him greatly.
Wow, three whole paragraphs on a strip that hasn’t even appeared! You may be in a rough ride from both Tom Batiuk and me!
*I refuse to believe the Lisa Fun Run has ever raised more than eleven dollars. I like that thought. Because, like Lex Luthor, I’m evil.
