Johnny Hart has passed away

Johnny Hart, the cartoon genius behind the B.C. and The Wizard of Id strips, has died at the age of 76.

Not much more needs to be said. The man was a giant in his art, and a giant for his faith. Even in the years when I wasn't a Christian, I was amazed at the passion Hart had in sharing his belief in God through his strips, especially B.C..

Here's one of the news stories about Hart passing. One think I can't help but think about in this: Hart devoted every Easter's B.C. strip to remembering the resurrection of Christ. And he died right at Easter... which for a person like Hart, is probably the most wonderful time to leave this world, if it can be said that there is one.
