Senior Strippers – 2022 Edition

Around mid-year we update our Senior Strippers list with a birthday of a cartoonist around this time.
However there are no 90th birthdays on our list for mid-2022 (the next on our schedule isn’t until 2023).

But we have added a few since last year.


Most recently Playboy cartoonist and children’s book author/illustrator Don Madden, whose birth in 1927 means he should have been added years ago. But we just discovered him due to a recent post on the Hogan’s Alley Facebook page.

Others added due to discovery is Judy Dixon and Bernie Hurlbut. Then there are those cartoonists whose birthdays in the last half of last year and in this year got them onto the list.

So this seems a good time to update our Senior Strippers roster for 2022, cartoonists who for 90+ years continue to survive “the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to.”

Below is, as best as we can determine, a list of cartoonists who continue to carry on past 90 years.
