How about this one? This A&J comic strip ran in newspapers in March, 1986, when the strip was less than a year old. Obviously, the characters and the general appearance of the strip have changed since then. The relationship of Arlo and Janis certainly has changed, I think for the better. When they were closer to newly weds, much of the writing involved Janis’ insecurities and jealousy. I’m happy to say, they’re way passed all that today. However, the strips about Janis’ neuroses notwithstanding, I also was struck by ways the strip has not changed. Much of the everyday humor would translate seamlessly into today’s Arlo & Janis. I’m not sure how I should feel about that.
