Elly goes a little overboard when expressing her enthusiasm about getting published.

(Strip Number 1044, Original Publication Date, 29 April 1986)

Panel 1: An elated Elly tells Mike that she's finally getting something published in a real magazine after years of slaving away in obscurity.

Panel 2: She hugs him and tells him that she never quite expected (but still hoped) to hear from such an important magazine.

Panel 3: She hugs Michael more tightly and tells him she is thrilled to death.

Panel 4: He tells her that he knows this because she is suffocating him.

Summary: Ah, well. At least she isn't the sort of sore winner Ted Forth is....yet. Also, given how this leads to her ending up getting hosed by a pol, it's sort of not nice to see that yet another happy beginning turns to shit on her in the end.
