Descripción del producto
Pogo is so richly developed in atmosphere, language and funny, funny animals that no matter how old you are, within in two panels you fall right into the world of Okefenokee Swamp. ...The art looks as if it came from the greatest of children's literature. The words ring with the wit of Jonathan Swift while at the same they sing with the musicality of Irish poetry. ... Stories flow across days and weeks as if they were written by Scheherazade, Aesop, and H. L. Mencken at a laugh-filled lunch hosted by Meet the Press. ... This volume is a true work of love and is perfect for all ages.--Mark Squirek

Many Pogo fans, myself included, grew impatient with the delays in publication of this project, in part because Fantagraphics has not been especially helpful in explaining delays and because we are understandably (in the light of the history of comics republication) apprehensive that this might be another ambitious project that doesn't get completed. Original Pogo strips ended in 1975, so we await another 10 or so volumes, meaning that this reproduction project won't be completed for another 10 - 15 years. And wouldn't Pogo himself, that esteemed creature of common sense, add on some years in which things just don't go as expected?
The long delays so far have been due largely, we are told, to difficulties in finding the most pristine existing copies of the earliest strips to be photographed for printing. But vol. 3 was delayed further by the sudden death of co-editor and co-publisher Kim Thompson in June 2013.
Vol. 3 has the same very high production values (paper, printing, binding, etc.) of the first two, coupled with very clean reproductions of the black-white daily strips and brilliant (and faithful) color reproduction of the Sunday strips. The book is a bargain on this account.
A few interesting and, I think, constructive changes in format have been made for Vol. 3. The first two volumes have a detailed "table of contents" of the reproduced strips, in actuality a summary of the story line of each week's strip. This has been scrapped in vol. 3; instead, vol. 3 has an "index of the strips" at the back of the book, which provides an easy way to find particular characters or subjects in the strips. Hopefully this will be expanded in future volumes. Vol. 3 also has a compilation of "noteworthy quotes" from the strips in this volume. No more hunting through a haystack of strips for quintessential lines like Howland Owl's assessment of the mud turtle Churchy LaFemme: "You gets turtler an' turtler every day." Vol. 3 continues the section "Swamp Talk," which explains the real-world references in many of the strips, arranged by date. This is an essential feature of this reproduction project if it is to grow new Pogo fans. Fans of Pogo in the 1950s were a hip, smart, and rebellious group who would quickly make connections between subtle situations or speech in the strip and what was happening in the U.S. at the time. That immediacy is lacking in someone much younger today.
Vol. 3 includes the strips that introduced Simple J. Malarkey, a caricature of Sen. Joe McCarthy (Rep. Wisconsin), whose political exploitation of the "Red Menace" of the 1950s produced the kind of harmful nonsense that recurs regularly in the U.S., variations on a theme and with different costumes and props. In 1954 The Providence [Rhode Island] Bulletin threatened to drop the strip if Malarkey's face appeared in the strip again. In one of his more brilliant moments, in his Oct. 5, 1954 strip Kelly had Malarkey throw a bag over his head as Miss "Sis" Boombah (a Rhode Island Red hen) approached, explaining that "no one from Providence should see me!" Adding to this "gotcha moment," Kelly drew the bag in a manner that conjured an unmistakable reference to a Klu Klux Klan hood.
Wikipedia has an excellent and comprehensive but also brief article on the Pogo strip.
So I send a huge "Thank you!" to Carolyn Kelly and her crew for bringing these books out and recommend them to everybody who wants a comic-strip view of the political issues of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, populated by a lovable possum and all his swamp friends.
Pogo says "ain't that more a Girl's name?" and Miz Beaver says "Only if you spells it with a final "E".
That's my favorite example of the kind of thing I loved - and still love- about Walt Kelly's Pogo. Insane absurd word play, good-hearted and fun with Southern stereotypes and language. He also throws in some astute socio-political comment, such as "We have met the enemy, and he is us." The man was brilliant. And the visuals are just as much fun.
The answer? Very!
Pogo features arguably the best artwork ever produced for a newspaper comic strip. The creator, Walt Kelly, was one of the early Disney animators in the 1930's/early 1940's, and this comic perfectly shows that. The black and white strips are impressive for just how much detail and character expression is crammed into such tiny panels.
The humor itself stands the test of time despite being written 60+ years ago. While Walt Kelly does poke fun at some of his contemporary politics (particularly the infamous Joseph McCarthy), such issues are presented in such a way so that readers from any time could understand the humor. The souther dialect spoken by the characters gives the dialogue much more character than other comic strips, both then and now.
Pogo is a legendary comic strip that deserved to be recognized by more young readers, especially fans of comics as a medium. Give it a read!
