    This comic is taking me right back to 1970.

    I can remember reading this comic in the late 60s or early 70s when I lived on the West Coast.

    Thank you.

    I remember reading this comic many years ago, but I thought it was a multi-panel strip. Did it change at some point in history?

    I also remember Emmy Lou from back in the day, and as far as I can recall, it was always a single-panel strip. Not to say that I couldn’t be wrong, as it was a while ago…

    Hi all…Marty Links’, Emmy Lou creator, Son-in-law here. Marty would be so thrilled to see everyone enjoying her Emmy Lou again. Marty passed away a few years ago, but I think she knows! She was just a wonderful creative person who just loved everyone.

    You’ll find that Emmy Lou is so relevant today. Yes, retro-cartoons and the 60’s and 70’s are in today, but much more important…Emmy Lou was a great role model to the youth of her time. Emmy Lou was about girls, boys and parents all done in a tasteful and respectful way. Emmy Lou pushed the limits and envelope with her parents but she never “crossed that line”, because she loved and respected them. Her humor could translate into the everyday life of anyone and everyone. I think that’s why we term these cartoons under “nostalgia”. They had a positive message for our youth.

    Please keep your comments coming. I will post a comment weekly. Marty was a great friend of cartoonists Charles “Sparky” Schultz (50 years), Hank Ketcham, etc. I’ll share a couple fun stories with you.

    David, Michael…Emmy Lou ran 6 daily panels and on Sunday Emmy Lou was a full multi-panel strip. We’ll integrate the sunday multi-panel strip into our Sunday’s here soon. Thanx for asking and remembering!

    I also remember it as being a single panel.

    As a mother and Emmy Lou fan, I love the idea of Emmy Lou making a comeback! I’m really looking forward to see what they have in store for her…endless possibilities in my opinion.

    How delightful to see this one re-launched. I remember it well from the first time round.
