Will there be a Funny Pages 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Funny Pages 2

Funny Pages is a 2022 coming-of-age black comedy centred around a 17-year-old cartoonist and his unlikely friendship with an unusual man named Wallace who was once a colourist for a famous underground comic book company.

The film has received many positive reviews from critics who enjoyed the sharp wit and clever direction of writer-director Owen Kline.

If you have seen and been entertained by Funny Pages, you might be interested in a sequel.

But will there be a Funny Pages 2? Here’s what we know.

What is Funny Pages 2 about?

The film is largely focused on Robert, an intelligent but slightly immature young teen who is a talented cartoonist.

We follow Robert as he tries to forge his own path in the world and we witness the encounters he has with a number of eccentrics along the way, including Barry, his seedy landlord, and Wallace, a mentally unstable former comic book colourist who becomes Robert’s unlikely mentor.

It’s this latter relationship that forms the heart of this movie and it’s one that has consequences that we won’t spoil for you here.

The film’s ending is inconclusive and leaves viewers wanting more. A sequel could tie up the loose ends but at the time of writing, a sequel has not been announced. We don’t think the director intends to return to Robert’s story but if we do hear of a follow-up movie, we will update this page with fresh information.

What could happen in Funny Pages 2?

Should a sequel be given the green light, it would likely centre on Robert again and his journey towards becoming a celebrated cartoonist. It might also provide a backstory into Wallace’s life as we don’t know a great deal about his past and the reasons for his violent tendencies.

We aren’t going to reveal any more of the first film’s story here, just in case you haven’t seen it. But if you have seen Funny Pages, and you have your own suggestions for the plot of the sequel, be sure to let us know.
