about this item

Walt Kelly's Pogo, acknowledged as one of the most important and influential comic strips of all time, first appeared not in newspapers but as a feature in the Dell comic book anthology Animal Comics, as well as in Dell's Four Color Comics before getting its own title, Pogo Possum, in 1949. It was here, in the four-color world of comic books, that the feature and its characters grew and matured, ultimately becoming one of the world's most famous comic strips. Now fans of Pogo can see it all from the beginning with Hermes Press' reprint of the complete Dell Comics Pogo. Noted comics historian Thomas Andrae observed that with Pogo, "Walt Kelly created a strip that is both poetic and graphically stunning as well as an important commentary on our times." With Hermes Press' complete reprint of Dell Comics Pogo, admirers of this groundbreaking comics feature can now witness the strip's evolution, in an archival hardcover, digitally reconstructed to perfection. This volume reprints Pogo Possum issues #3-6.
