FBorFW Newsletter, January 2011

The latest newsletter is up and ready for our perusal.


Happy New Year to all! We wish you all the best in 2011.

Something Old, Something New is now available! Our first FBorFW treasury collection, a huge 408 pages of memories and laughter, features a rich serving of entirely new cartoons and full-colour Sunday strips (most never available before in a collection book). The first FBorFW Treasury offering, the omnibus features storylines from the strip's original three cartoon collections: I've Got the One-More-Washload Blues..., Is This "One of Those Days," Daddy?, and It Must Be Nice to Be Little along with commentary from Lynn. This hardcover book was a real labour of love for Lynn and her studio crew and we can't wait to share it with you! Get your autographed copy today!


Read 30 years of FBorFW strips in our online catalog! We'll be working on improving our search tools so you can track down your favourite strips more easily. In the meantime, enjoy the random strip generator, or browse the books.

Lynn and Liu go to Peru! Last November, Lynn and her bookkeeper / Spanish teacher Liuba voyaged to Peru to work as translators for a medical mission sponsored by Medical Ministry International. We serialized Lynn's travel journal on our site with photos!

Have you joined us on Facebook yet? People who "like" our Facebook page get lots of chances to win signed books, and get first notice of new stuff on our site, including our weekly podcasts. We passed 4,000 fans in January and the ranks are growing every day!

We've been podcasting! Check out our brand new video podcast page for some short interviews with Lynn! We add a new one every Monday.

We've just gotten our hands on electronic copies of the animated FBorFW TV show that used to run on the Teletoon network here in Canada. We've been uploading them one at a time - check this page out every week to see what's new!

We've added New Year's egreets to the site. They'll be online for a few more days, so send them out and wish a happy 2011 to your friends!

Lynn recently contributed to the North Bay and District Hospital project by creating three pieces of mural art to decorate the brand new hospital! You can take a look at the art she designed here: Mural One, Mural Two, Mural Three.

FBorFW Satire Over the years, lots of cartoonists have taken clever jabs at FBorFW or given a tip of the hat to Lynn, and we've finally accumulated enough of these to make a collection of them. Hope you enjoy; some of them might not be appropriate for younger readers so please use your judgment if you're surfing with your kids. If you know of any other strips referencing FBorFW, we'd love to hear about it!





Something Old, Something New is now available!
