Notes: Editor's note p. ix: "And so for this first release we are able to bring you the first two years of Pogo ... and since those were not full years, there's ample room for the precursor of the nationally-syndicated strip. ... Subsequent volumes will each house two full years, give or take a week or so when a storyline stretched past New Year's Day and so belongs in either volume. Kelly wrote and drew Pogo for twenty-four years, and each of these books is designed to contain two years so we're looking at a nice, even twelve volumes."

Abstract:

"Welcome to the Okefenokee Swamp where you're apt to meet someone you know, someone you want to know and at least a few you'll quote to your dying day. Walt Kelly launched the Pogo newspaper strip in 1948 and after but three years, his cartooning brethren awarded him their highest honor, the Reuben Award. A good chunk of that three years is contained in this book. It's the first volume of the long-desired complete reprinting of every daily Pogo strip in black and white and for the first time, every Sunday page in full color ... plus, there are many large scans from the original art showing Kelly's beautiful brush line. The book is designed by and produced under the watchful supervision of Walt's daughter, Carolyn Kelly. Here's Walt Kelly's Pogo ... a very high watermark in the history of the funny pages."--P. [4] of jacket.
