Since their debut in 1979, the world has watched the Pattersons grow up in real time–and to many readers, they feel like family. This new series is the definitive edition, collecting three decades of comics in nine volumes. The cast expands and roles that will play a big part down the road are just starting to bud. New adventures await Elizabeth as she enters kindergarten and has to spend some time in the hospital. Michael has to deal with a bully at school and takes a flight to Vancouver–all by himself! John has an unfortunate accident and is arrested for breaking and entering! And Elly finds a worthwhile cause in heading up a campaign to save the historic city hall which has been scheduled for demolition. Plus, Uncle Phil begins a new relationship and the Enjo family moves next door. Lynn Johnston’s signature style becomes more defined and her storylines more complex as we carry on through the eighties. Volume Two collects the complete daily and Sunday comics from January 1983 through July 5, 1986, with all Sunday comics printed in color. 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!
“Fans of the highest virtuosity in cartooning will relish this deluxe introduction to the Patterson’s heartfelt and delightful story.” —Douglas Rednour, Library Journal.
