JOHNNY HART – EASTER IN HIS HEART IN HIS ART

The late Johnny Hart (1931-2007) was a brilliant cartoonist. From his pen came B.C. and Hart was the co-creator of The Wizard of Id. Raised in a religiously-casual family, Hart became a committed Christian in 1977 while attending the Presbyterian Church in Nineveh NY. With a new found faith, Hart began to share that faith through his comic strip B.C., often arousing the ire of politically correct editors. His Easter strips in particular challenged the publishing world because of the accurate reflection of the truths of the Bible. Nonetheless, Hart’s comic strip masterpieces have left an indelible mark of the “faith once delivered to the saints.” He is my all-time favorite artist and today, as we approach Easter, I want to share some of his memorable strips.
