    Lynn Johnston - For Better or For Worse Sunday Comic Strip, dated 8-31-86 (Universal Press Syndicate, 1986). The mastermind behind For Better or For Worse, one of the most popular and critically successful comic strips in recent comics history, is Lynn Johnston. Loosely modeled on her own family, Johnston's strip runs in more than 1,600 papers. If Johnston's work seems so honestly and genuinely realized, its characters so in touch with themselves and their world, it is because they are extensions of their creator's complex and perceptive personality. The comics-reading public was treated to this Sunday strip from August 31, 1986 drawn in the easy going style that is her signature. The art measures 13" x 9". There is some slight staining around the logo paste-up, but otherwise the work is in Excellent condition. From the collection of Gill Fox.
