The Complete Funky Winkerbean Volume 4: 1981-1983 by Tom Batiuk [Black Squirrel Press; $45]. With a foreword by Stan Lee, this handsome hardcover book collects three more years of the Funky Winkerbean newspaper comic strip, both dailies and Sundays. As regular readers of this column will recall, Batiuk is my friend, neighbor and occasional employer. But, long before I met Tom, I was a big fan of this strip. I'm looking forward to rereading these strips and, of course, I recommend this volume to you as well.
