Timing Is Everything

According to reports, Johnny Hart, the creator of B.C. and co-creator of The Wizard of Id, has died at the age of 76. I used to read both many years ago, but as Hart “found Jesus”, the strips (especially B.C.) had taken an evangelical slant that made them unfunny to me. Still, I find the timing of his death quite interesting, coming the day before Easter. Of course, the strip published today had quite the Easter slant.
