Lynn began drawing For Better or For Worse® in 1979. Over the 29-year run of the strip, the Patterson family experienced many milestones, made many
friends and encountered all aspects of modern life.
Now that FBorFW is in "new-runs" and Lynn's drawing style has changed (look here for an explanation), we're gradually updating the website to reflect the new look of the strip and remove items that don't fit the strip's new direction. But we know you'll still want to see the older website content, so we've collected it here for you to enjoy!
