Hubert, by Dick Wingert

In 1942, Dick Wingert was hired by the London-based team of the American army magazine, Stars and Stripes. Here, he created the character of Hubert, the stereotype of a simple soldier. At first, 'Hubert' appeared as an illustration, combined with dialogue or a phrase. In 1945, 'Hubert' was turned into a daily comic, distributed by King Features Syndicate.

Wingert gave up the military theme and Hubert became a civilian. Dick Wingert drew the series until 1994 and, throughout the years, he created several other characters for the comic, like Hubert's wife Trudy, his daughter Elli and the dog Freddy.
