More Home Sweat Home

Lynn Johnston's For Better or For Worse is the world's most popular family strip in which characters have evolved through age and experience, rather than remaining frozen in time.

In Home Sweat Home, moves are afoot aplenty. John and Elly downsize to a new home and Mike and Deanna buy the family homestead to raise their children as a new generation fills the Patterson legacy.

* In September 2007, Johnston made an unprecedented move for a cartoonist; she introduced a new format by using current plot lines as a jumping-off point to revisit past storylines that complement the new ones.
