S is for Sally Forth #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of comic strips. For those young ones out there, a comic strip is a few drawn panels telling a story which appears in the newspaper. The first daily comic strip began in 1907, but the color comics (Sunday funnies) actually began back in 1894.

If you are here looking for my typical Wednesday quote, I will go back to my regular schedule in May. Until then, enjoy the A to Z Challenge…

S is for Sally Forth, created by Greg Howard in 1982. It focuses on a white, American middle-class mother and HR manager. Even though many of the strips focus on Sally, some of them also center around her husband Ted or her 12-year-old daughter Hilary and her friends. Howard stepped back from both illustrating and authoring the strip. Currently, Francisco Marciuliano is the author and Jim Keefe illustrates.

Interestingly, there is another comic strip by the same name that ran in Military News and later Overseas Weekly. In this strip, created by Wally Wood in 1968, Sally Forth is a sexy, action-adventure character that often appears nude.
