Adieu, "For Better or for Worse"
So I speak with some standards of comparison at my beck and call when I say that, for my money, the best of them all has been Lynn Johnston's "For Better or for Worse", in which we follow 3 generations of the Patterson family of Canada thru life's everyday ups and downs. Unlike most strips, the Pattersons age in real time, so we see them thru all the stages of life, including death.
And now we have evidently reached the death of the strip itself. This is what appears to be the final one:
Adieu, FBorFW. You were so gentle, so kind, so sweet, so lovely, so human. Gone but not forgotten.
And thank you, Lynn Johnston, for letting the rest of us grow up along with the wonderful family of your imagination.
