On Guard! It's the Dragon!

We're trying to build a continuity here of Walt Kelly Peter Wheat postings, but inevitably there must be gaps where we have yet (and I do mean YET) to find missing issues. So here we skip ahead from our initial string of #s 1, 2 and 3. Our next full issue, posted here, is #7— as always courtesy of the ever-generous OtherEric of the Digital Comic Museum.

To help bridge the continuity, until we find the missing issues, thanks to Steve Thompson, President of the Pogo Fan Club and author of the Walt Kelly Collector's Guide, I can offer the basic story lines for # 4, 5 and 6:

#4, no image at this time, 'the Hornets attack the grain wagons and dump flour during harvest time.'

#5, low-res cover shown below, 'the Wizard and Dragonel are chained by the little people, but plan to escape.'

#6, low-res cover shown below, 'the little people have a council of war, and Dragonel decides to spy.'

And we can pick up here with #7 in total, with nice scans thanks to OtherEric, with a little clean-up by me:


  1. Sweeeeeeeeeet! I was holding my breath for more Peter Wheat!

    Hey, that kind of rhymes.

  2. I have found Fabulous Fifties archives that has a couple of Peter Wheat stories--they also show that has some also,--
    archives: 4 17 2009 and 5 22 2009. so others are posting these great stories--charlie

  3. Glad you liked it. #7 has been posted before as a cbz, but never on a blog. The covers of 5 & 6 are new, though, and we wanted to show the story since it leads into 8 & 9.
