Lance Mannion says it better than I ever could, so go read him on the subject of Anthony and Elizabeth’s marriage in “For Better or For Worse.” This was once one of my favorite comic strips, and he comes close to capturing my utter disappointment in this awful plot development. Someone said here a while back that Lynn Johnston recently suffered some tawdry personal tragedy — her husband ran off with her younger assistant, or something — and I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t play a huge part in this.
It’s hard to believe, watching an interesting young woman stripped of her career and married off to a dickless bore, that this cartoonist once had the guts to kill a dog in a daily comic strip.
Poor Lizard Breath. Ick.
