Beetle Bailey is celebrating his 70th birthday this week! Beetle has been a favorite comic strip of mine for as long as I can remember. Through my membership in the National Cartoonists Society I was honored to become friends with one of my cartooning heroes, the late Mort Walker and his talented sons, Greg, Brian and Neal. In honor of Beetle's big birthday, I thought I'd post a couple of crossover strips I have done with Beetle and Snuffy Smith over the years. Each one was a joy to create!
This Barney Google And Snuffy Smith comic strip ran on Beetle Bailey's 60th birthday.
I was honored to have Beetle Bailey be part of the 100th birthday celebration of our Barney Google And Snuffy Smith comic strip in 2019. This comic strip I created ran in June of 2019.
Bodacious Birthday Wishes, Beetle Bailey! And congratulations to Greg, Brian and Neal Walker and the entire Beetle team!
