This is the first time Pogo has been complete and in chronological order anywhere — with 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.

In Volume 6 (1959–1960), Albert Alligator and Beauregard Bugleboy fend off a man-from-Mars, and Howland Owl investigates Communist espionage in the postal system. Then, it’s election year and Okefenokee Swamp gets a new presidential candidate, Fremount the Bugboy. His campaign slogan, “Jes’ Fine,” sparks political debates about just who can and should be president — maybe even a woman! Edited by Mark Evanier and Eric Reynolds, with supplementary features by comics historians R.C. Harvey, Maggie Thompson, and Evanier.

“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
