2019 09: Elly's Surprise Pregnancy: Browse The Strips


Saturday September 7, 2019

Lynn's Comments: I've told this story before, but here it comes again! I was beginning to regret having the characters age in real time. I was losing the art and sweet comedy of "the baby days." My young characters were speaking in adult language and having adult concerns. I talked to Cathy Guisewite ("Cathy"), and she suggested that Elly should have another baby. I argued that I only had two kids in real life and didn't know what it would be like to have three. She said, "Lynn, it’s a comic strip. Make it up!"

Lynn's Comments: My punch lines often relied on figures of speech. I thought that Elly's fainting in the last panel here would make sense. Sometimes, readers were left wondering what there was to smile at because the gag was a bit obtuse. All I can say is that cartoonists are on a tight deadline. We have to use what comes to mind and hope for the best.
