Cartoonist Johnny Hart Has Died

I was saddened to hear the news that Johnny Hart, creator of the comic strip B.C. and co-creator of The Wizard of Id, had died at his drawing table following a stroke.

Hart is one of the great cartoonists of our time, right up there with Charles Schultz. He was also a very religious man and regularly included Christian references into his strips, something which irked many secularists.

Fortunately, his death does not mean the end of his comic strips. His family, which he involved in the making of the strips over the years, will continue to produce them, because that is what Hart wanted.
