Johnny Hart, dead at 76.

I just read on the associated press that Johnny Hart, creator of B.C., died of a stroke on Saturday at age 76. He was at work at his drawing table and apparently suffered a stroke. He died doing what God called him to do.

At the right I put up a copy of one of his easter sunday comics from a few years back. His simple way of putting things was always refreshing. I know I will miss his wit and humor, and his family will be in my prayers.

Rest in Christ Johnny. Till we meet on God's golden shore.

I looked forward to reading B.C. every year around Lent and Easter. I will dearly miss Johnny's confession of the Christian faith in such a simple yet direct manner.

My favorite of his Easter cartoon showed footsteps from the open tomb, across a body of water, and a snake complaining, "Hey, somebody just stepped on me!"

I remember that one. I too have always looked forward to Hart's comic strip, especially aroung Christmas and Easter.

the big test

Since someone, somewhere, has seen fit to deprive the world of Issues etc and take a huge bite out of confessional Lutheranism at the same time, I will not take up the mantle of working to see that those who did it answer for their actions.
