The Barnaby Books Barkis. The last strip of Barnaby 6 is dated 31 May ; Johnson had stopped writing them in January -- he was still involved as a story consultant, but Jack Morley and Ted Ferro wrote and illustrated it intoafter which Morley continued without Ferro from then on, the credit read "Jack Morley and CJ". Johnson took over in full for the final episode, and the last strip was published on February 2,so there are nearly 6 years' worth of un-anthologized strips.
Despite his death before the advent of webpages, the Crockett Johnson Homepage exists. It is maintained by Philip Nel and includes, among other things, a short biography and bibliography. Crockett Johnson was not a professional mathematician.
Crockett Johnson's Barnabylike Krazy Katappealed to a smaller audience than most comic strips. Comics historian Ron Goulart says it appeared in only 52 newspapers in the U. But the strip's readers were an appreciative elite.
