“Here, from a woman’s perspective, was the reality of daily domestic life—beautifully drawn social satire, unafraid to skewer male chauvinism, or explore the twin challenges of women’s lib and motherhood. Johnston’s groundbreaking strip remains critical without being caustic and sweet without being sentimental.” — The Globe and Mail

“Fans of the highest virtuosity in cartooning will relish this deluxe introduction to the Patterson’s heartfelt and delightful story.”—Library Journal (starred review)
