The Intellectual Comic Strip Business

Here is a spot-on parody of Pogo, illustrated by Wally Wood — a rarity to see in color! This treat is courtesy of Ger Apeldoorn's The Fabulous Fifties blog. Go there, check out the rest of the great strip parodies.

What You Might Call Woozled

My time is really being overwhelmed by deadlines these days, so posting has to be minimal for now, but you know I'd not miss a Sunday post if I can help it.

Until we can get some new scans from DJ David B., who is still dealing with a flood cleanup, we are digging back into my collection of Pogo Sundays. This is the 1st of a 3 Sunday arc, all about spending time in bed. And when Kelly draws that subject it looks so cozy that I just gotta go hibernate for a few hours myself.

Merely Your Shadow

Kelly liked Groundhog day, I think, because it starred one of nature's screechers. These are just a few excerpts of his many variations on shadow play.

Oh, What is So Rare as a Day in June

Here's a nice little bit of Pogo memorabilia sent over by Thomas Matkey — a publishers' weekly proof sheet from June of 1964.

Thank you, Thomas!
