Mort Walker, RIP -- January 28, 2018
Mort Walker has died.  He was a World War II veteran.  Beetle Bailey started as a teenage comic strip and became a military comic.  The Chronicle did not carry it, but I read the Sunday version when the Chronicle and Examiner printed a joint edition.  I didn't buy the comic books, but I received a few copies from someone.
Lois of Hi and Lois was supposed to be Beetle Bailey's sister.

I saw only a few examples of Sam's Strip, but it looked wonderful, with lots of references to older comic strips.

Walker founded a comic museum that wound up in Florida.
