The Comic Adventure-Like Things of The Spinner Family

/Authors Notes:This started out as a comic book called GeNeRaL DiZzYnEsS I was doing, thought you ought to know./

The Story So Far...

A young 17-year-old Amy Spinoza fell in love with the slightly less young Richard Maurice Spinner, an Indiana-Jones wannabe, and ended up getting pregnant with Johnathon Spinner. They were forced to be married (Amy and Richard, that is, not Amy and Johnathon), but it didn't work out. They divorced just as there second child, Esti, turned 5 years old, and Richard ran off to go exploring in Asia. Amy was forced to take a different job with more pay, but also more hours and the Boss-From-Hell, Mister Cornucopia, in order to support the children, although Richard was a useless prick anyway. John, now 17, won a scholarship to Sir Snoaty's School For Incredibly Talented Children, although Esti, now 13 and in 7th grade, goes to a regular public school.
