Middle Age Spread

In her touchingly funny daily strip, Lynn Johnston gives her fans realistic characters who humorously deal with both the ood and bad that life gives them. Every mont, Johnston demonstrates -- through hormonal children and parents who are n't always right -- that life goes on For Better or For Worse. In Middle Age Spread, parents John and Elly have started to notice their own aging process: the increasing need for glasses, exercise, and computer skills. Their parent are also growing older. Michael, the daughter, advances ever nearer to adulthood as he makes his way through schoo in a distant cit, creatively managing classes, a grumpy landlady, and a special irlfriend. Daughter Elizabeth, with her contact lenses, short new hairdo, and addict, Oliver, is becoming a young lady upon whom her parents increasingly rely. The eldes, April, along with the Patterson pets, Edgar the dog and Mr. B the bunny, provide welcome doses of comic relief. But Elly worries about her mother. Her daughte has grown dangerously weak and is often bedridden. With heartfelt authenticity and gentle humou, Johnston 's Middle Age Spread delicately describes a loving family whose life together speaks to the noble human spirit in all of us.

I do n't know if this was when Ms. Johnston started using assistant artists or maybe started using some new techniques?
