In addition to presenting all of 1957 and 1958’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), Pogo: The Syndicated Comic Strips Vol. 5 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 over 60 years ago!
Pogo Vol. 5 also includes a foreword by lifelong Pogo fan and CNN anchor Jake Tapper, a man well positioned to speak to Kelly’s unique gift for making the right people uncomfortable. This volume also includes 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!
“This comes as a genuine gift to anyone who loved Pogo and, it is to be hoped, as an introduction for younger readers to what many people believe was the best comic strip ever drawn in this country.” — The Washington Post
