Keep it in the family

Investigating the father/son dynamics in creating comic strips.

The family arrangement prevailed not only in the funny pages but also in real life. Now age 81, Walker presides over a nest of strips worked on by his sons, as well as the sons of Dik Browne. It takes a complicated chart to trace this family tree, but, in a nutshell, “Hi and Lois” is now produced by Brian and Greg Walker and Chance Browne, “Beetle Bailey” by Mort Walker and Greg Walker, and “Hagar the Horrible” by Chris Browne.
