Reminder: Hybrid FBoFW Begins Today

imageAs mentioned here late last week following a sudden, final, confirming announcement, Lynn Johnston's mega-hit For Better or For Worse starts its hybrid formatting today. This will involve framing sequences and then past runs of strips. Apparently, for the first several months, the strip will switch between this approach and first-run strips involving the Patterson clan mainly intended to -- or at least expanded to include -- resolution of a romantic storyline involving daughter Elizabeth and hometown beau Anthony. I can't imagine that many papers will switch off the strip before the last "present day" storyline ends, which means that a lot of people will get a healthy dose of hybrid to kick off the Fall.
