Middle Age Spread

by Lynn Johnston

The focus of this For Better or For Worse collection seems to be the forces that pull upon the middle-aged. More and more we're called upon to aid our aging parents while our kids continue to come up with new challenges to hone our parenting skills. In the case of Elly Patterson, her mother is in failing health back in British Columbia, while her daughter April is threatening to amass a menagerie, daughter Elizabeth is being a teen-ager and son Michael tries to figure out what to do with his life. It's still good comics, though there seems to be a slight change in the art. I don't know if this was when Ms. Johnston started using assistant artists or maybe started using some new techniques? Or maybe it's just my imagination.

Check it out for yourself!
