Book Description

14 May 2005
Beetle Bailey has over 200 million daily readers and appears in almost 2,000 newspapers worldwide. Few strips have the popularity of staying power of Beetle Bailey, able to entertain readers for nearly four decades. As creator or co-creator of four other popular comic strips, including Hi & Lois and Boner's Ark, Mort Walker is the most widely published cartoonist in comics history. It's a testament to Walker's genius and Beetles' Universal appeal.

Walker created Beetle Bailey just before the Korean War, and the strip has evolved into a comics page staple where the fun, but ineffectual, denizens of Camp Swampy exist in a place long forgotten by the Pentagon. At the bottom of the heap is Beetle Bailey, the eternal private who sees his duty as sleeping whenever possible, needling Sarge, and avoiding work at all costs. But Sergeant Orville P. Snorkel has different ideas--he may beat up on "his boys", but he then takes them out for a beer. General Halftrack is more concerned with ogling Miss Buxley than running the camp. And with inept officers like Major Greenbrass, Lieutenant Fuzz, and Lieutenant Flap, nothing ever gets done. But that doesn't keep the troops from complaining, or getting into one hilarious mess after another.

Beetle Bailey, the character, may never get a promotion, but Beetle Bailey, the comic strip, has made it to the top.

3.0 out of 5 stars Selection of newer, lesser Beetle 18 Aug 2000
By Brian D. Rubendall - Published on Amazon.com
Beetle Bailey as a strip has shown a hardening of the arteries over the years, as evidenced by this selection of strips from the 1980s. It is not nearly as consistently funny as classic Beetle fron the 60s and 70s, which were the strip's best decades. Still, there are sill enough good strips to make it worth owning for the ardent fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL FUNNY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS! 16 Mar 2001
By BeatleBangs1964 - Published on Amazon.com
The cast of characters at Camp Swampy are just as funny as ever. They have not lost their "core" characters that their creator, Mort Walker assigned to them. They remain true to their characters and remain funny to this day.
Beetle Bailey has certainly raised the bar in comic excellence; nobody could EVER forget that lazy, lovable and TOTALLY funny work dodging private! I think Beetle Bailey should be promoted to Private First Class and Sarge to Sgt. Major. Poor Sarge has had all he could do trying to rein in his wayward men. This is truly an excellent collection.
