The Complete Dell Comics volume one
Walt Kelly's Pogo, acknowledged as one of the most important and influential comic strips of all time, first appeared not in newspapers but as a feature in the Dell comic book anthology Animal Comics, in its first issue, in 1942. It was here, in the four color world of comic books, that Kelly developed the feature and its characters, who grew and matured, ultimately becoming one of the world's most famous comic strips. Volume One features all of the Animal Comics Pogo stories together with complete reprints of Pogo's appearances in Dell's Four Color comics. This book also boasts numerous examples of original artwork from these stories as well as scholarly essays from noted Pogo historians.
