'''''Sally Forth''''' is a King Features syndicated [[NewspaperComics newspaper comic]], originally written and drawn by Greg Howard (then a recently retired lawyer), and introduced in 1982. It is a slice-of-life domestic comedy, tending towards story arcs but often using the gag-a-day format for the Sunday strips. In 1992, Craig [=MacIntosh=] took over the drawing with Howard continuing to write. Then, in 1999, Francesco Marciuliano took over the writing, when Howard left the strip completely (and when arguably the strip [[GrowingTheBeard entered into its full form]]). Sally Forth is carried in nearly 700 papers nationwide.

-->Nona started as an answer to my own question, "What if [[Literature/HarryPotter Luna Lovegood]] lived in the suburbs... and wasn't a wizard... and didn't have an English accent even though, let's face it, English accents make everything sound brilliant or diabolical... except maybe the poor English characters in Creator/MikeLeigh films... Seriously, just watching those doomed characters try to scrape enough shillings to purchase a pen to sign over their house to creditors is absolute torture... Who am I talking to?"

[[SimilarlyNamedWorks This strip should not be confused with]] the decidedly [[SallyForthWood more adult military comic of the same title]] by Wally Wood.

* OneTwoPunchline: Under Marciuliano, especially. In fact it's not too rare to see a one-two-three punchline if, say Sally, Ted and Hilary are all in the last panel.

* DeconstructorFleet: Marciuliano seems to take pleasure is showing how off-putting a sitcom-like family would be in the real world. As an example, the Forths have no friends because no one wants to deal with [[ManChild Ted's loopiness]] or [[BrokenBird Sally's desperate need to prove herself]] to her mother.
