'Beetle Bailey' cartoonist Mort Walker dies at 94

Walker's work ethic was defined by "Beetle Bailey," the longest-running comic strip drawn by its original creator, but he published eight other strips at various points of his career. Among those was "Hi and Lois," a "Beetle" spinoff he launched in 1954 with Dik Browne, future creator of "Hagar the Horrible."

Mort Walker, whose 'Beetle Bailey' was a comic-page staple for decades, dies at 94

In contrast with the work-shirking soldier he immortalized, Mr. Walker was a man of considerable drive and ambition. He drew his daily comic strip for 68 years, longer than any other U.S. artist in the history of the medium.
