Romance is in the air as Michael starts dating a girl he hasn’t seen since childhood. Something tells him that she is “the one,” but only if he can first make it through the stress of attending university! The trials of school affect his younger siblings, as Elizabeth struggles to find her identity in the halls of high school and April begins kindergarten!
Meanwhile, Elly has to deal with the loss of a loved one, and John comes to peace with hitting the big 5-0. And if that isn’t enough, Gordon and Tracey have a baby, Weed and Mike go on a world tour, and Lawrence meets his father for the first time!
Lynn Johnston closes out the ’90s with pathos, affection, and of course, laughter! Includes every comic strip from September 1, 1996 through the end of 1999.
Today, as For Better or For Worse® continues to run in repeats in newspapers everywhere, we begin to revisit Lawrence’s coming-out story from 1993. A storyline that saw Lynn nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, this series of strips created a massive controversy at the time—and we’re curious to see how things have changed in the 29 years since.
Frank Pauer asked Lynn for her remembrance of meeting her first cartoonist. This article was meant to be published in the National Cartoonist Society’s “The Cartoon!st” magazine, but Covid prevented its publication. Frank was kind enough to let us print it here.
