The Kennedy Gallery Visit.

One of the latest press releases is this article about some photos taken of Lynn's appearance at the Kennedy Gallery in North Bay.


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.

The day after the opening, Lynn visited Dark Horse Comics for a meet ‘n’ greet and book signing. It was well-attended and Lynn enjoyed talking with other members of the local arts community.

We were thrilled to have Lynn back in town for a few days. There’s still time to see the show: it’ll be up at the WKP Kennedy gallery until November 12th.

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?"
