In other news,
This week in Part 3 of his 1971 BEETLE BAILEY Timeline series, Brian Walker shines a spotlight on Rocky, editor of the base's newspaper, the Camp Swampy News. See how the character first appeared and how he has evolved through the years in Brian's always interesting blog.
Over in Part 1 of the 1971 Timeline series of HI AND LOIS, Brian Walker reveals how Mort Walker and Dik Browne, who had very different drawing styles, worked together on Hi and Lois and developed a true artistic collaboration. Check out what some of the initial drawings looked like in Brian's blog.
And finally, in his BIZARRO blog this week, Dan Piraro has fun with a host of cartoons about everything from bungee-jumping aliens to germophobia, from the Shriners to country music, and let's not forget about politics! Don't miss Dan's hilarious and always insighful blog!
