Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"After reading this edition of Beetle Bailey I have to say that I believe there’s a reason that Walker’s creation lasted as long as it did and it’s because Mort Walker was probably one of the true masters of comic strip art of the past century." — Ain't It Cool News

"With a history that actually surpasses Peanuts, Beetle Bailey deserves a solid collection treatment, and Titan seems intent on delivering it." — Crave Online
