Lynn Johnston's Publicity Run Continues

Fans of For Better or For Worse have their choice of Lynn Johnston articles this week: a more lighthearted look at the move of her popular feature into the "hybrid" era in USA Today, a dryer piece at Editor & Publisher on the impact the cartoonist's separation from her husband of 32 years has had on her work, and a smart piece at the LA Times from Alex Chun that blends the first two approaches and adds some historical perspective. I'd kind of recommend reading all three. The material about Johnston's separation -- which I think is either now just coming to light or is being re-examined in light of her professional moves, I can't remember -- is also rather affecting on many levels.
