Title: The Lives behind the Lines
Author: Lynn Johnston
Lynn Johnston is the creator of the comic strip For Better or for Worse. In this book, she uses a narrative approach to explore the lives of the characters: life transitions, self-discovery and relationships (family, inter-ethnic, inter-racial and inter-generational.) What ensues is social commentary thoughtfully illustrated by examples from Johnston’s comic strips. For anyone interested in comics and their social impact this book is a must-read. As a devotee of For Better or for Worse, it’s a book that I re-visit frequently.
