The Passing of Johnny Hart

Johnny Hart

(18/2/1931 - 7/4/2007, USA)

- Gary Varvel
"The world has just lost a cartooning giant. Johnny Hart was one of the masters. His humor and drawing style influenced my generation of cartoonists but it was how he wove his faith into his work that inspired me most. The Bible says that God knows the plans he has for us. Johnny discovered early in life what God's plan was for him and he fulfilled that plan. Well done, Johnny."

- Gary Varvel, editorial cartoonist

From Paul: I've been a fan of Johnny Hart's comics with a Christian thought, as a method of enjoying our Christianity, and sharing it with others. I appreciated his creativity, and his humor. He will be missed. Following are a selection of tribute toons, and some from my archive that I've gathered.

There once was a cartoonist named Hart
For the Gospel he did his small part
And he proved it’s not a rumor
That God has a sense of humor
Picking Easter for Johnny to depart
