(W/A) Walt Kelly
Foreword by Jimmy Breslin
Our first volume (of 12) collects approximately the first two years of Pogo dailies and, for the first time, full-color Sundays. First created in the 1940’s, Pogo blended nonsense language, poetry, and socio-political satire, presaging later strips such as Doonesbury and The Boondocks. Special features in this premiere volume include a biographical introduction, an extensive glossary by comics historian R.C. Harvey and a foreword by legendary columnist Jimmy Breslin.
