Happy Mothers Day!

By Alex Garcia
Happy Mothers Day!

My wife, Abby, cooks in our family, so on Mother’s Day, I usually make her breakfast in bed as a special treat.  We also feature this tradition regularly in Hi and Lois.

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are important holidays, and it would be an oversight not to celebrate these occasions on a family strip like Hi and Lois.  But it does present a challenge to come up with fresh ideas every year.  There are only so many variations on the breakfast-in-bed scenario.

In 2006, I thought it might be interesting to look back at mothers throughout history, so I wrote this episode.  Chance did a great job creating convincing juvenile versions of these well-known historical figures and their mothers.

It is always fun for readers to discover more about the backgrounds of our characters than is revealed in the current strips. In this Mother’s Day Sunday page from 2008, Lois reflects on how her aspirations have changed throughout her life and her hopes for the future.
