Love and Rockets: New Stories
#4 picks up both of these storylines, first with the conclusion to "Love Bunglers" (did Maggie really dump Ray again?), then with a sequel of sorts to "Browntown" in which teenage Maggie returns to Hoppers and a new life.

Meanwhile, on the Gilbert side of town, High Soft Lisp's Fritz returns in "Talkabout," a 15-page dialogue with an old beau. Second up is the 35-page "King Vampire" Two lovable teens, Cecil and Trini, want to join a local vampire club but real vampires show up and things get serious. Cecil loves it but Trini has her doubts about going all the way. But wait -- is this a real story or another "Fritz movie"? Some of the characters look awfully familiar.
