B.C. on Good Friday

"I hate the term 'Good Friday'!" "Why?" "My Lord was hanged on a tree that day If YOU were going to be hanged on that day, and he volunteered to take your place, how would you feel?" "Good!" "Have a nice day!" And in the words of B.C., this Good Friday piece of comic strip art captures the full essence of the meaning of Good Friday in three simple frames communicating profound insight. Artist Johnny Hart and his comic strip B.C. has delighted readers for over 50 years and continues today even after his death. It is now written by his grandson with the same flair and conciseness made famous by its creator. In an interview in “The Comics Journal,” it’s said that over the years Hart’s B.C. comic strip for Good Friday and Easter were best known for their biblical content from the Gospels.
