Presents the years 1959 and 1960 of the politically progressive, influential newspaper strip.
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 since their original appearance in Sunday newspaper sections. In Volume 6, 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!

“[E]very panel was packed with visual — and often quite literal — poetry. ” — Glen Weldon - NPR
