Reveille – A Family Legacy In Comics

When Mort Walker began Beetle Bailey way back in 1950, he mostly likely never knew that it would become a world wide phenomenon seventy years later and a legacy that includes his three sons.

Mort Walker passed away in 2018, but before he passed, his grandson, David, shot a documentary about the legendary cartoonist and his sons and the creative process behind the creation of each daily strip.

This is a fascinating look at the way Mort tackled each strip, a pleasure to witness his collaboration with his children who now carry on his work, and most importantly, it is a way to hear and see Mort in action in the final years of his life, doing what he loved up to the very end.
