  1. Sally Forth

    Sally Forth is a daily comic strip created by Greg Howard in 1982, focusing on the life of a white American middle-class mother at home and work. Sally's name is a play on words—"to sally forth" means to set out on an adventure. Howard, after almost ten years, was joined by Craig MacIntosh, who began doing the drawing. In 1999, Howard quit writing as well and turned the strip over to Francesco Marciuliano. Marciuliano and MacIntosh continue publishing the series with King Features Syndicate distribution.
