B.C. Cartoonist Johnny Hart Dead at 76

Johnny Hart, the cartoonist who created B.C. and The Wizard of Id, died of a stroke on April 7th while working at his drawing table. He had just undergone treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was 76 years old.

Mr. Hart became one of the most popular cartoonists of his era, with a readership estimated at 100 million since starting "B.C." in 1958 and "The Wizard of Id" in 1964 (with artist Brant Parker). Creators Syndicate distributed both strips, each of which appeared in more than 1,300 newspapers, including The Washington Post.
