BC was the invention of Johnny Hart, a talented and much missed cartoonist. I am delighted however that the strip is being continued by his grandsons Mason and Mick Mastroianni and in 2012, a new book was published by Willow Creek Press. I hope there are more to follow.

This was probably the silliest title of all - at every reprint, the title had to change as the price changed! It was the same with the UK versions! I am interested in acquiring copies (or at least images) of any other title (price) variations.

Reprints often tended to just change colour.
I believe there is a fourth colour for this book but not sure what it is.
