Funky Winkerbean creator Tom Batiuk remarks on the passing of comics artist Jim Mooney — it turns out a strip Mooney drew for the comic strip may be his last published work:
I was saddened to hear about Jim Mooney’s passing. About a year ago, Tony Isabella wrote a sweet little Funky Winkerbean Sunday featuring my characters as Superman and Supergirl. He suggested I contact Jim to actually draw the Superman characters. I did and found him to be one of the nicest and genuine individuals you’d want to encounter. He agreed to do the Sunday and did a wonderful job. The strip will run Sunday April 13th and quite possibly could be Jim’s last published work. If so, I feel privileged to have been a small part of it.
