about

Return to where the Patterson family began inside this latest collection of For Better or For Worse. Michael prepares for his first day of kindergarten, Elly returns to school to complete her English degree, the family adopts Mrs. Baird’s sheepdog, a.k.a. Farley, Elizabeth grows from baby to toddler, and despite her best efforts, Elly can do nothing to treat John’s hopelessly incurable fashion sense. It takes a keen eye to recognize life’s shared experiences and an even keener intellect to assemble those moments in a humorous and heartfelt way. With For Better or For Worse, Johnston elevates everyday aspects of life into brilliant observations on personal career goals, parenting choices, and coffee klatch friendships. For Better or For Worse has been syndicated since 1979 and was named Best Syndicated Comic Strip in 1992. For Better or For Worse appears in more than 2,000 newspapers in 23 countries, and is translated into 8 languages for a devoted readership of more than 220 million. The strip boasts a lively Web presence at www.fborfw.com. Inside Something Old, Something New, award-winning For Better of For Worse cartoonist Lynn Johnston takes readers to a place where Dad makes mental notes because he can’t read his own handwriting, Mom can’t get sick because she doesn’t have the time, and too much quiet from the kids can only mean disaster is about to strike. In 2008, Johnston made an unprecedented move within the cartooning community by deciding to use former plotlines as starting points for new ones. To this end, Something Old, Something New features storylines from the strip’s first three cartoon collections—I’ve Got the One-More-Washload Blues . . . , Is This “One of Those Days,†Daddy?, and more than a month of Sundays with entirely new cartoons and full-color Sundays. Something Old, Something New follows John and Elly back to where it all began as
