* When Lynn Johnston compiled a variety of strips together by story arcs on the "ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse" Web site, the section featuring Anthony saving Elizabeth from being attacked by a would-be rapist omits a series of strips that paint Anthony in a ''very'' unflattering light. The married-with-child Anthony, instead of taking Elizabeth to the police to report her attempted rape, first announces that "he's never had anything to fight for until now" (this, from a man with a wife and ''months-old daughter''), then takes her to a park and proceeds to go on an utterly inappropriate, whiny diatribe about how horrible ''his'' married life has become ("I have no home!"). From the context, this is mostly because his wife refuses to be a stereotypical stay-at-home mom. And all of it is explicitly an effort to guilt-trip Elizabeth--remember her, the young woman who's just been violently assaulted by her stalker?--into waiting for him. Apparently Johnston designed the entire assault plotline simply as a means to give Anthony an old-fashionedBigDamnHeroes moment, complete with StandardHerosReward, and until the inevitable backlash erupted was completely oblivious to the fact that she was instead turning him into a {{Jerkass}} of the highest order.

* When Lynn Johnston compiled a variety of strips together by story arcs on the "ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse" Web site, the section featuring Anthony saving Elizabeth from being attacked by a would-be rapist omits a series of strips that paint Anthony in a not-so-flattering light. The married-with-child Anthony, instead of taking Elizabeth to the police to report her attempted rape, goes on an utterly inappropriate diatribe about how he loves Elizabeth and yet wants her to put her entire life on hold and wait for him. Why? Because Anthony had forced his wife to have a child she did not want and Anthony did not want the scandal that would ensue if he left his wife for Elizabeth, after forcing her to become a mother against her will.

* ''ComicStrip/AngusOg'': Sadly many strips from this title are missing entirely, with not even the author, Ewen Bain's, estate having copies of them; mainly the gag-a-day strips, the longer arcs are a little more complete. Newspaper comics were seen at that time as a disposable medium. A few compilation books do exist though, with the surviving storylines.

** It was left out in a 1998 comic book reprint and on the D23 website, but the relatively recent Floyd Gottfredson Library reprint (2011) left the sequence intact.
