Summary
  • "Welcome to the Okefenokee Swamp where you're apt to meet someone you know, someone you want to know and at least a few you'll quote to your dying day. Walt Kelly launched the Pogo newspaper strip in 1948 and after but three years, his cartooning brethren awarded him their highest honor, the Reuben Award. A good chunk of that three years is contained in this book. It's Volume 1 of the long-desired complete reprinting of every daily Pogo strip in black and white and for the first time, every Sunday page in full color ... plus, there are many large scans from the original art showing Kelly's beautiful brush line. The book is designed by and produced under the watchful supervision of Walt's daughter, Carolyn Kelly. Here's Walt Kelly's Pogo ... a very high watermark in the history of the funny pages."--Page [4] of jacket
  • "Volume 2 in Fantagraphics' projected 12-volume reprinting of the syndicated Pogo strip introduces one of Walt Kelly's greatest recurring storylines: our possum hero's ever-reluctant quadrennial run for president ... Okefenokee Swamp grows ever more populated with the addition of, among others, the sinister duo of Sarcophagus MacAbre and Wiley Catt (intent on dining on turtle soup--or, failing that, mushrat stew); the disruptive Cowbirds; Tammanany Tiger, the ultimate political animal; and an obstreperous new porkypine who briefly displaces the old one. Also in this volume: a poetry contest involving a Rhyming Worm; bird-watching with the Bats; a journey to Mars; Albert's exoneration from the charge of cannibalism; a parody of Little Orphan Annie featuring Houn'dog and Pogo as 'Lil'l Arf and Nonny'; two slightly twisted fairytales, 'Handle and Gristle' and 'Goldie Lox'; Howland Owl and Churchy La Femme's career as dentists; and of course a few rousing seasonal choruses of 'Deck Us All With Boston Charlie.' This volume features two full years' worth of meticulously-restored Pogo strips, including dailies and (for the first time in 60 years in their original, spectacular color) Sundays--plus informative story notes by historian R.C. Harvey, archival reproductions of original Kelly art, and a new introduction by the legendary satirist and friend of Walt's, Stan Freberg"--Front jacket flap
  • "Volume 3 covers the years that Walt Kelly took political commentary in Pogo to a new level. It was the year some readers finally noticed that while Mr Kelly had been writing and drawing about amusing, colorful swampland critters, he was also writing about some of the more dangerous critters in the real world, taking on Senator Joseph McCarthy in the form of wildcat Simple J. Malarkey (a controversial move at the time) and more in this collection of years 1953-1954. This volume features twoi full years' worth of loving restored Pogo strips, including dailies and - for the first time in sixty years in their original color versions - the Sunday funnies ... There are annotations from historian R.C. Harvey, a selection of Noteworthy Quotes and a foreword by ... editorial cartoonist Mike Peters"--Publisher's description
  • "Volume 4, in addition to presenting all of 1955 and 1956's daily Pogo strips complete and in order for the first time anywhere (many of them once again scanned from original syndicate proofs, for their crispest and most detailed appearance ever), of Pogo: The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips "Under the Bamboozle Bush" also contains all 104 Sunday strips from these two years, presented in lush full color for the first time since their original appearance in Sunday newspaper sections 60 years ago - plus the usual in-depth "Swamp Talk" annotations by R.C. Harvey, spectacular samples of Kelly's work scanned from original art, and a whole lot more!"--Publisher's website

  • Editor's note p. ix: "And so for this first release we are able to bring you the first two years of Pogo ... and since those were not full years, there's ample room for the precursor of the nationally-syndicated strip. ... Subsequent volumes will each house two full years, give or take a week or so when a storyline stretched past New Year's Day and so belongs in either volume. Kelly wrote and drew Pogo for twenty-four years, and each of these books is designed to contain two years so we're looking at a nice, even twelve volumes."
