For anyone who's wondering how the 'new-run' experiment - in which creator Lynn Johnston intersperses old strips with new ones in the old style - is working over on For Better or For Worse...
...well, you probably need to get back on your meds sooner than later, so I'll sum it up for you real quick: A week or so in, Johnston abruptly disconnected the letters page on her site in favour of one carefully handpicked question a week. You know, vital questions, like 'which character is your favourite to draw?' That sort of thing.
Why? Explain to me why I or anyone else with an even half-way plausible life should care about revisiting the Pattersons at this point?
You haven't added any distinctiveness, or even really any detail, and you sure as hell haven't provided any insight. All you've done is transmute the elements that were fresh and funny into dull-witted, plodding dross. It's as if Norman Lear, on revisiting All in the Family, decided that after all he'd rather it be more like Leave it to Beaver.
All the brave words in the world can't hide the fact that you're utterly bored with your creation. You have all the money anyone could want. So why are you doing this - why are you putting yourself through this - in lieu of curling up somewhere there are no drawing boards and licking your raw wounds in peace?
Yours quite seriously,
