Addison Morton “MortWalker

September 3, 1923 – January 27, 2018


Sad News – The cartoon world has lost a legend! Addison Morton “MortWalker,  a World War II veteran who satirized the Army with antics of the lazy private “Beetle Bailey,” died Saturday. He was 94.

Walker died at his home in Stamford, Conn., Walker began publishing cartoons at age 11 and was involved with more than a half-dozen comic strips in his career, including “Gamin and Patches,” “Hi and Lois,” “Boner’s Ark” and “Sam & Silo.” But he found his greatest success drawing the private “Beetle Bailey”, along with the other denizens at the fictional Camp Swampy for nearly 70 years. The character that was to become Beetle Bailey made his debut as Spider in Walker’s cartoons published by the Saturday Evening Post in the late 1940s. Walker changed Spider’s name and launched “Beetle Bailey” as a college humor strip in 1950.

I had the honor of knowing Mort for many years now, and he was a huge supporter of the scribbles from my humble drawing board. Mort created many of the strips that I always turn to first on the printed pages. I will miss speaking with him, he was such a warm and great individual. Simply at a loss. There will never be another cartoonist that will compare to the awesomeness that was Addison Morton “MortWalker.

Ha! I will always smile when I think of my friend. Here is some coolness that Mort personally gave me. It has been hanging proudly in my humble studio since I received it. A great memory that I will always remember is that I would make old school hand drawn birthday cards for Mort. The second image is the inside image from the last card I sent him. Mort as “Sarge” alongside PINHEAD as “Beetle.”

Manic Mondays continue. We are looking at the funnies from previous and recent  featured cartoon madness appearing on the printed pages. This week editorial cartoons. These are from the time I was the editorial cartoonist for The Nashville Free Press during 2009-2010. They published them in the magazine style editorial one-shots. Sadly, I had to find another publication to set up a new editorial cartoon bullpen as The Nashville Free Press shuttered it’s doors.  The above one-shots are circa 2009-2010 You can find the fresh editorial funnies over at The Global Free Press’ cartoon bullpen. Delivering the news relentlessly since 2006 and still growing strong.

Manic Monday continues cartoon fans! Here is a glance at the very first image of PINHEAD© created for FIDDLESTIX©. This was created in 1979 and PINHEAD actually started appearing on the printed pages 3 years after the initial run started. Recently I have used the character more often in certain cartoon strips. So here we are 39 years after creating the initial characters still rolling along.

We hope everybody is enjoying the new schedule which features other cartoon projects for Manic Mondays. Stay Tooned cartoon fans there are more thrills and chills coming. FIDDLESTIX©, Welcome To The Jungle©, and all the Editorial Cartoons are distributed world wide through Hill Communications Canada!
