I always enjoy “For Better or For Worse”. You don’t get this book to see new material, much of it I’ve already seen in Lynn’s other works. Instead you get it because of the commentary and perspective that it puts on a comic that has not only been around for 28 years (as of this posting) but has grown and matured as I have over the past 3 decades.
There are insightful mini-essays from folks near and dear to Lynn that help to give you some insight what it must be like living in the same circles as someone who can produce such great work. I get the sense that she’s not the easiest person in the world to be around sometimes, but for all involved those less than rational moments seem to be more than outweighed by the wonders and tribulations expressed by this “parallel family” from Lynn’s mind.
The comic is still as fresh as it ever was and I still look forward to reading the strip each evening.
