I didn't realize, though, the religious influence that Johnny Hart infused into his comic strip. A Religion News Service article includes a bit of the background:
'He wanted people to know that God had a sense of humor,' said his daughter Perri Hart. 'He really always felt that this was what he was called to do.'Johnny Hart's widow and daughter have compiled the religion-themed "B.C." comics into a new collection, "I Did It His Way."
