Fantagraphics Books will publish a “Complete Pogo” series starting this October, The Comics Reporter blogger Tom Spurgeon reported today.
“Pogo” — by Walt Kelly (1913-1973) — is considered one of the best syndicated comics of all time for its witty dialogue, astute political commentary, and lavish art.
The books will be released on a roughly annual basis, said Spurgeon, with each volume containing about two years’ worth of material.
Fantagraphics had previously published 11 paperback “Pogo” books covering more than five years of the strip; this material will be included in the new collections.
