40th Anniversary – Conclusion

by Brian Walker, Greg Walker and Chance Browne

The Sunday page we did for the 40th anniversary story in 1994 showed Beetle and his sister Lois flipping through pages in an old family photo album.

It was fun to imagine what Beetle and Lois might have looked like when they were younger and to speculate about the dynamics of their relationship.  We were writing the backstory of characters who had been around for decades.

The story concluded with a strip on the following Monday in which Sarge showed up to retrieve Beetle before he went AWOL.

Can you guess which Bailey/Flagston family member is missing in this panoramic scene?  We will tell you the answer in the next post.

We hope our readers have enjoyed seeing these strips from twenty years ago. This was an historic moment in the history of both strips.

It is hard to believe it was that long ago.
