In 1972, Tom Batiuk created a comic strip about high school student Funky Winkerbean and his pals. Today the characters are adults and the comic strip explores sensitive, real-life issues such as breast cancer, teen pregnancy, and addiction. "My Name Is Funky...and I'm an Alcoholic" chronicles the three-year plot line of Funky Winkerbean's slide into alcoholism and his eventual recovery. Readers see how Funky's marriage, friendships, and work begin to suffer as drinking takes center stage in this life. Readers also learn about how an intervention works when Funky's friends confront him and urge him to seek addiction treatment. Readers also get a glimpse into what happens in a treatment program, how Twelve Step meetings work, and just how easy it is to relapse. In the end, readers experience the promise of recovery by witnessing Funky's commitment to living one day at a time.Funky Winkerbean is syndicated in 400 newspapers with an estimated "pass-around rate" of 93 million readers daily. Its comic strip genre makes the sensitive subject of alcoholism approachable for readers of all ages and for a variety of audiences. It includes a resource section for those seeking answers about alcoholism and how to find help.
