Fantagraphics reanimates Walt Kelly’s “Pogo”

Fantagraphics Books has been doing yeoman’s work in the field of comics and graphic novels for decades now; publishers of such indie legends as Peter Bagge, Chris Ware, Roberta Gregory and Daniel Clowes, they’ve also become the essential compiler of classic comics in complete or nearly-complete runs, going so far as to even take on the challenge of gathering a half-century of Peanuts. Now, heroically, they’ve added the sadly neglected Walt Kelly to the list; his legendary strip Pogo is the next big Fantagraphics project, and the first volume has just been released.
