I learned many facts that I did know about Beetle Bailey. Recommend you reading this one and a must if you have a collection.

A small paperback book to celebrate 50 years of Beetle Bailey? This just doesn't seem right. Beetle Bailey, is one of the most popular comic strips in history and this is all we get? This 128 page volume begins on the campus at Rockview U where Beetle is serving time as a college student in September 1950. A hat on the top of his head covers eyes that you will never see. In March of 1951 Beetle enlists in the United States Army and very quickly our hero is well-established as a no-good goldbrick that lives to foil the Sarge on a daily basis in thousands of newspapers worldwide.

The cast grows and grows and Beetle moves from decade to decade as the private that defends America from all foes foreign and domestic. This is fine for what it is but I would have loved to have seen a more deluxe version of the adventures of Private Beetle Bailey.

Be careful and don't pay the vendors tons of cash for this as it only cost $9.95 when it was first published back in 2000.
If you can find this book at a reasonable price go ahead and purchase this.
But, don't spend all the rent money to obtain this volume.
Four Stars!

This delightful collection of Beetle Bailey strips had me laughing so hard it HURT! Mort Walker is truly a genius! The indolent soldier, the irate sarge and cast of assorted, equally funny characters are truly a treat. This collection is truly a treat. You will learn from Private Beetle Bailey the fine art of work dodging, sarge baiting and finding laughs in the most unlikely places. A keeper!

Beetle Bailey has been in service for fifty years and this collection compiles artist Mort Walker's best and significant strips of the lazy soldier. The book is broken up into the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's and it's real interesting to see how the characters' look have evolved over the years. Beetle himself was originally a college student and Mr. Walker explains that at the time very few people went to college in the country and could relate to Beetle, so in order to sell the strip on a wider level he ha Beetle join the army. Obviously, Mr. Walker made a smart decision as Beetle and his Camp Swampy are still going strong.
