Beakman & Jax Creator Jok Church Passes Away at 66by GoComics
Jok Church, beloved creator of You Can with Beakman & Jax, passed away on April 29, after a heart attack.
Beakman & Jax, which debuted in 1991, utilizes a Q&A format to answer questions from young readers, such as "How do you make pasta?" and "Why does our stomach grumble when we're hungry?" Most comics also include an experiment readers can perform at home to help illustrate a specific scientific concept.
Several bestselling Beakman & Jax books have been published, and the comic was also adapted for television as "Beakman's World" in the mid-1990s.
Church will be missed by his young fans and his friends at GoComics. Rest in peace.
