Today in Comics History, September 22: Happy birthday, Bilbo Baggins!

Born today on September 22, Third Age 2890: Mister Bilbo Baggins, one heck of a nice little guy. (Also today: his nephew Frodo Baggins.)

from The Hobbit (Eclipse, 1989), script by Charles Dixon; art by David Wenzel, letters by Bill Pearson

Excellent birthday gift suggestions for Bilbo: tobacco, books, exotic maps, Hickory Farms gift packages, "Hey You, Pikachu!" for the Nintendo 64.

Bad birthday gift suggestion: costume jewelry.

Happy birthday, Bilbo!
