Hart, created award-winning ‘B.C.’ comic strip

first_imgALBANY, N.Y. – Cartoonist Johnny Hart, whose award-winning “B.C.” comic strip appeared in more than 1,300 newspapers worldwide, died Saturday while working at his home in Endicott. He was 76. “He had a stroke,” Hart’s wife, Bobby, said Sunday. “He died at his storyboard.” “B.C.,” populated by prehistoric cavemen and dinosaurs, was launched in 1958 and eventually appeared in more than 1,300 newspapers, according to Creators Syndicate Inc., which distributes it. After he graduated from Union-Endicott High School, Hart met Brant Parker, a young cartoonist who became a prime influence and co-creator with Hart of the “Wizard of Id” comic strip. Later in his career, some of Hart’s cartoons had religious themes, a reflection of his own Christian faith. A strip published on Easter Sunday in 2001 drew protests from Jewish groups and led several newspapers to drop the strip. The cartoon depicted a menorah transforming into a cross, with accompanying text quoting some of Jesus Christ’s dying words. Critics said it implied that Christianity supersedes Judaism. Besides his wife, Hart is survived by two daughters, Patti and Perri. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
