GoGomics interviewed Lynn, about her experiences as a female cartoonist, for International Women’s Day. Check out the full interview here.
When Lynn Johnston created For Better or For Worse in 1979, she was a pioneer — one of small number of women cartooning from their own points of view and under their real names. This International Women’s Day, we caught up with Johnston for her perspective on the evolution of comics under her tenure. We wanted to find out how history shaped her early experiences as a professional cartoonist, and how her ongoing success shaped history and contributed to a more inclusive comics page. Read on for a reflection on her career and to catch up on her current exploits.
