Set in a fictitious United States Army base called Camp Swampy, Beetle Bailey collects the daily strip adventures, or lack of them, of Private Bailey. He is a lazy, bone-idle shirker of almost epic proportions and his Herculean efforts to avoid work and his eternal quest for sleep are much to the chagrin of his long-suffering nemesis Sergeant Srkel. It comes with an introduction by Stan Lee.
Mort Walker, prolific cartoonist, had his first cartoon published at the age of 12 and was the chief editorial designer at Hall Brothers. Beetle Bailey became his first success. He followed it with Hi and Lois, Boner's Ark, Gamin & Patches, Fitz's Flats, The Evermores and several others.
