Nephew Barberry Got a Pointy Quality

Yay, it's a landslide! Continuity wins! If only all voting could be this simple and dignified! As a bonus feature, I'll try posting these fill-ins every couple of days for a while, so as to hurry back to vintage newspaper tear sheets!

Pogophiles are great people! LLK!

Need Your Opinions

Okay folks, I need your opinions. At this point in the current continuity, there is a break in the collection of original Sunday newspaper strips, a fairly long break of 6 weeks.

Would you rather that I continue with what I have of the newspaper strips, with that break . . . or fill in the continuity with modern reprints in order to keep the storyline unbroken? You Pogo addicts have already seen all these strips, but casual fans prolly haven't.

Please speak up and let your opinion be heard!

Usual Bright Personalities

This is a forwarded note from David Burd, the grand fellow that has kept us supplied with vintage 1952 Pogo Sundays:

"I've searched for one of these since 1976 and I finally got one! That's 40 years. By comparison Kasper Gutman searched just 17 years for the Maltese Falcon."

Yay, David, I know how you feel!

And that's one of the nicest renderings of Ma'amselle that I've ever laid eyeballs on. Miz Beaver ain't bad neither!

Hurdy McGurdy Hoofaraw

I just have to imagine that, all those years ago, Kelly had a grand time as he traipsed through each panel, being silly and sassy, writing and drawing as he pleased, making it up as he went.

Figgly Mortis, Sir

We're missing a strip from the Tony Peters collection, so here's a fill in, for all you completists out there.

Perfessional Duty Calls!

These boys are always doin' something re-dickledockle! This is a fine looking Sunday strip from so long ago, thanks to David Burd and the Tony Peters Collection! One of these times I'll take the time to tell you about that collection.

By the way, I dedicate this Sunday strip to Larry Kuenning, who took the time to write a nice email with some information. Thanks Larry!

Happy Sunday, Kelly Sunday!
