FOR A HALF-
It is a good thing to be king in the century.
There are real magicians and chickens.
The kind-hearted Knights chiefs, even the pickled clowns, are not that bad as they have neat punch lines that can be as dark as Mead.

Today, on the comic page, you can see how some of them salute and celebrate the 50 th anniversary of the "Wizard" in their own zone.
Comic Riffs listen to their own favorite memories with some cartoonists: BRIAN CRANE)“Pickles”)
: What can I say about the 50 th anniversary of "Id wizard?
I think I can say that it's shocking to realize that I'm big enough to read it from it.
A long time ago, I was a paper boy and dreamed of making a cartoon of my own one day.
I like the quirky sense of humor and the good looking.
The style of painting is very good.
So last year, I was very excited when Patty Hart asked me to write a preface for all the new book episodes of the 1973 "Id Wizard.
Happy anniversary, "Id Wizard" and so on! BRIAN WALKER (“Hi and Lois”)
Johnny Hart always said he was serious.
As I reflect on the humor of the classic creations of Brent Parker and Johnny Hart, I think of the memorable words of the Wizard: "flaming of Jim Jamm, crotz
It's really interesting now.
Patrick McDonald (“Mutts”)
: When Patty Hart contacted cartoonist around 50
Anniversary, I am very happy to be one of them.
It's interesting to draw a king. it's a very quirky character design.

I had the privilege of having breakfast with great Johnny Hart.
He is, of course, a fashionable and cool cat. MIKE PETERS (

Everything about Johnny Hart.
My first time [saw]
Johnny Hart, 1965, I work at the Chicago Daily News/SunTimes building.
I just got my first job in the paper as an employee artist.
I heard Johnny Hart was on the floor. His “B. C.

With Brent Parker.
It looks as big as it will be.
He came in a black shirt and black trousers. so cool.
I'm sure he was promoting the new strip and he smiled and shook hands with everyone he met.
I feel very honored to be one of them.
When I started my strip about 15 years later, we became good friends.
He invited a small group of his friends in B. C.
Golf Open in BinghamtonY.
They have it every year.
This is the case.
But I like to tell Johnny's story: he and his wonderful wife Bobby bought a beautiful house in Binghamton.
He had a wonderful home and he built this gorgeous studio next to it, all on his property.
One day, Bobby noticed that these sightseeing buses were heading towards [1. the]
At the entrance of their house, people went out to take pictures.
She told Johnny that this is something that happens a lot.
Johnny thought it would be a good idea to distribute a small signed copy of "B"C.
"And" Id guide "for these tourists.
So Johnny made the comic, signed it, and Bobby made the cookies.
A sightseeing bus stopped the next day.
. . . . . . Bobby will distribute cookies and cartoons and tell them something about [Hart’s strips]
Thank you for coming.
People seem to appreciate it, but are a bit confused and ask, "What is B?
C and "id wizard "?

: When I think back to falling in love with comics when I was a child, I rarely think of comic pages, even though I have been reading them all the time.
It was those amazing little paperbacks that attracted me, and I guess that's because you can have them and read them over and over again.
Of course, there are "Peanuts", "Hagar" and "B" in my collection. C.

But what fascinates me most is the Wizard of Id.

I think I'm some kind of kid comics connoisseur and I feel like we're sharing an internal joke.
The irony is a bit heavy, and the joke is a bit cold.
But what really killed me was art.
It is so loose and airy. I pictured Mr.
Parker was just sitting in a comfortable chair kicking backwards, maybe wearing a smoking jacket, holding a drawing pad on his lap, and casually putting the characters on paper, it seems like this is the easiest thing to do in the world.
Like all seemingly simple cartoons, they are impossible to copy.
God knows I tried.
So when I offer my sincere congratulation to the Wizard and am in awe of the manga celebrating the 50 th anniversary, I am not surprised.
The great ones tend to last. KEVIN RECHIN (“Crock”)

Growing up is one of the best gifts a young cartoonist can ask.
The world he created with Johnny Hart was so whimsical and fun.
The simple beauty of painting style is combined with cutting machine intelligence, making this belt the most important one --time greats.
