The timeless classic that feels more timely than ever.

As he entered the 1960s, Kelly's savage wit was as sharp as ever, and his political satire as fiercely independent as ever, as evidence by the introduction of a nameless, mannerless pig with an ominous resemblance to Nikita Khrushchev, and a scruffy goat who looked exactly like Fidel Castro. Both assured Okefenokeeans that a one-party system was the way to go; all would be well economically, they explained, because “"the shortage will be divided amongst the peasants." Other storylines spotlight Kelly's remarkable cast: Pogo Possum, Albert Alligator, Howland Owl, "Churchy" LaFemme, Beauregard Bugleboy, Porky Pine, Miz Ma'm'selle Hepzibah, Deacon Mushrat, and so many others.

This series represents the first time Pogo has been collected complete and in chronological order anywhere. This volume includes all 104 Sunday strips from 1961 and 1962, presented in lush full color for the first time since their original appearance in Sunday newspaper sections, as well as gorgeous black-and-white reproductions of Kelly's elegant dailies from those two years. Edited by Mark Evanier and Eric Reynolds, with supplementary features (including comprehesive annotations and index) by comics historians R.C. Harvey, Maggie Thompson, and Evanier.
