Giving you double for your money this week. These strips are late in the game in Kelly's life. They are likely reruns or repurposed—I haven't had time to check. Kelly was in a world of hurt at this point with only months to live, so people were pitching in to keep the hoopla hooping.
At the same time, newspapers were downsizing their comic sections and a double tier Pogo strip just wasn't what the doctor ordered.
I regret that the color (and lack of color) is screwy on this page. It shows the little regard that pressmen had for the comics by 1970. They probably said, "Eh, no one notice or care if we don't finish this. This'll just be trash in a couple of days", not knowing that 46 years later people all around the world DO notice and DO care.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
