Say hello to Elly, John, and the entire Patterson family. It's the definitive edition to add to your library!

For Better or For Worse is one of the most beloved comic strips of all time, with a devoted audience of more than 220 million. This new series, produced with Lynn Johnston 's cooperation, collects three decades of comics in nine volumes.

Since For Better or For Worse debuted in 1979, the world has watched the Patterson family grow up in real time--and to many readers, they feel like family! This premiere volume includes more than 1,200 sequential daily and Sunday comics--from the beginning! With all of the Sunday comics printed in their original color!

This book is the perfect place to start for both long-time fans and new readers alike. Elizabeth grows from baby to toddler and learns how to talk, Michael goes to kindergarten and meets new friends, John juggles dentistry and diapers, while Elly manages the daily duties of being a dedicated mom, wife, and eventual student, as well as being a willing ear to her friends.

Each volume also contains a number of annotations by Lynn Johnston detailing motivations for certain strips, funny anecdotes, observations about the reaction from fans, and much more!
