Vic Lockman ( October 19, 1927 – June 1, 2017)[1] was an American Christian cartoonist and comic strip writer. He started cartooning from a young age, taught by his father. He was once head of the art department for the School of Aviation Medicine at Randolph Field, Texas. He was married and had 6 children. His son, Mark Thomas Lockman (1952–1989) was a journalist, to whom one of Vic's cartoon books was dedicated.

Among the many comic strips and cartoons he created, Lockman might be most known for his characters created for Disney comics in 1960; Newton Gearloose and Moby Duck.

In 1985 Lockman created “Who’s Behind the South African Crisis?”, the pro-apartheid comic as a supplement to newsletters published by the Canadian League of Rights. According to Michael Beukert "While the blatant racism expressed by the cartoon is shocking, it is worth noting that it outlines many of the tropes which were commonly articulated by right-wing and even liberal commentators sympathetic to South Africa. Furthermore, the most violently racist of the tropes produced below — including the idea that Africans are incapable of governing themselves, and the threat of black violence against young white women — were contemporaneously being repeated by newspaper columnists in places like the Toronto Sun."[2]
