Generous to a Fault

First offs, soo-prize! I ent gonna make you wait til Sunday, Kelly Sunday to gits a golden ol' Sunday strip.

Now, second, let me make myselfs perfectly clear . . . I loves the Fantagraphics Books volumes of the complete syndicated comic strips of Pogo (volume 2 now appearing at your local bookstores—yay), it's a magnifercent effort to bring us the totality of Pogo like we nevers seen afore. Okay, the color may be a little pale and/or too clean, but it's put together with love, which of course Kelly dee-serves.

SO, if'n you have the second volume of the complete syndicated comic strips of Pogo, published by Fantagraphics Books, the next few posts are no soo-prize, story-wise. But note—these are the tabloid versions, standin' straight and tall, bursting with rich color from real newsprint, coming to you via DJ David B, with edits by moi—ALso put together with love, which Kelly so richly dee-serves.

If you're a fan of the best cartoonist in history, GO FORTH, buy the complete syndicated comic strips of Pogo, volume 2, subtitled Bona Fide Balderdash, published by Fantagraphics Books. It is worth your time and money. But also stay 'tooned here, cuz these gen-you-wine strips are also worth your time and they is complete FREE.

Thank you, one and all, and may you all be blessed with a bona-fried happy new year!

  1. Thom,
    you really did it this time.
    If one cannot depend on its being Sunday when a Pogo Sunday strip shows, what can one depend on?
    (not even the Mayas...)
    Today YOU are first:
    not forgetting


  2. A masterpiece! Thanks, Thom, for all you've done and for continuing to do so in 2013... jes' like Albert hisself, you is generous to a fault.

    My slipcase & Vol. 2 arrived before Christmas, and they make for a handsome presentation. I encourage to pick the books up, they're exceptionally well done and you get plenty for your money.

    Happy New Year to All!
