I always like bc, it was one-of-a-kind. Sometimes cartoonists give us an answer, but we`re too busy laughing.

ot- gee nanc, you`re pretty. Lucky guy, your hubby.

B.C. was always one of my favorite comic strips. Satirical and funny, it will be missed.

Good night and a fond farewell!

The outhouse one is supposed to be subliminally offensive to Muslims.

Hehehehe.

Hey, at least no one can accuse Johnny Hart of false-advertising, beamish.

Nanc, I am glad you included that addendum statement by J. Hart. VERY GOOD!!

Hart was a genious. I loved the b.c. cartoon strip. I think it was at Shoprat's blog where I read his family is planning on carrying on with the strip, but can it really be the same?

I never could get into comics. I guess it's a younger generation thing? Who knows? Evening Nanc!

Hello nanc, another icon of my childhood is gone. Jeez, I used to look a "BC'' all the time, it was like "Peanuts'', it was always there, like Prozac for our generation. Sigh. Take Johnny Hart. J"Mac.
