This past week, Lynn’s gallery show (titled For Better or For Worse: The Comic Art of Lynn Johnston) opened at the WKP Kennedy Gallery in North Bay, Ontario. Lynn flew back from her new home in B.C. to join us for the opening, and for a few days of events.

Personal comment: Is it just me or should that photo of the kid with the Pikachu be called "Universal Martyr Lynn glares reprovingly at evil child with evil drawing of evil Japanese electric rat?"
