Instead of ending FBOFW, Lynn Johnston is opting for a hybrid strip so it can continue and she can still enjoy her life. Which is nice, because I love the strip, so I'm glad it will continue in some form, but I don't know how I feel about the characters no longer aging. One of the things I loved about FBOFW is that the strip followed real time. April is around the age of my nephew so I was always comparing their development. I enjoyed seeing how she aged the characters art-wise, the subtle line changes and shading. But I guess I'll be happy just to have the strip for years to come. As long as Elizabeth does not end up marrying that wimp Anthony.
