Lynn Johnston Moves Syndciates

“For Better or For Worse” cartoonist Lynn Johsnton is moving the acclaimed strip back to Universal Press Syndicate this fall.  Universal had signed Johnston initially and had syndicated the comic until Johnston moved to United Feature Syndicate in 1997.

According to Editor and Publisher, Johnston is also reported as saying that she’ll hang up her pen & ink in 2007.  “The cartoonist did add that it’s possible her strip might be continued by another creator,” E&P notes.

I met Lynn a few years ago at the Festival of Cartoon Art at Ohio State in 2001.  She was just a lovely person and very encouraging about my gag cartoons.
