The title for the lead story this issue is "The Return of Valerie." Long-time readers will realize they're in for a treat, as the issue spotlights Buddy's temperamental ex-girlfriend, back in Seattle! Buddy, in typically weaselish fashion, arranges a date with Val behind his current girlfriend Lisa's back - but things don't turn out the way Buddy hoped or anticipated. Also in this issue, "Stinky in Gotham," as Buddy's sleazy ex-roommate reaches NYC - say no more!
