For Better "re-runs" clarified

I was reading The Daily Cartoonist, a aimed at professional cartoonists, and saw an entry from Monday about Lynn Johnston's plans for the much-loved "For Better or For Worse."

The clarifications ran in an interview in E & P, a journal about the newspaper industry.
Check out the interview to see how Johnston's planning to tweak the "flashback" concept.
She says that by this fall all of her characters will freeze in time. After that, the 1979-launched comic will focus on the younger versions of the characters, some new material and some old, and drawn in her original style.
If you follow the comments, you'll see what others think of the idea.
More and more, I have to agree with some of the comments and a lot of local fans who have written in: Let the strip end on a high note. If you want to dive back into the past and rework the storylines, come out with a book. Fans will buy it.
Check out the links and let me know what you think.
Fans, are you eager to see this?

I have been an FBOFW reader for many years, and I agree with you that maybe the strip should end on a high note, not with rehashed old strips.
