First For Better or For Worse by Lynn Johnston for September 10, 1979
Elly: Aaah... ze sensuous evening repast pour deux... and no kids... the lovely hostess... provocatively attired wafts a hint of musk as she moves... her hair... glistening with a new radiance. As she glides over to the sink he stares bewildered by the change... John: Are you gaining weight?

It might be an old strip, but it’s still very true! Some guys never want their wife to have any eself esteem, or she might leave him. And she probably should have.

Wow. I can’t believe it’s the very first one. I like this strip a lot; it’s not perfect, I don’t agree with all aspects of it, but I do really enjoy it. This could be a fun read through

Her first published work was in “David, we’re pregnant!!” – a collection of cartoon panels that she drew for her obstetrician’s ceiling. :D

Could have been a great romance if she had watched her weight.
