Rowrbazzle to Freshen the Mind

Woosh, you don't know how close it came to not having a Sunday strip waiting for you on this Sunday morn. I've got a horrible deadline with multiple illustrations and cartoons that have to be done by Sunday evening and fired off to the client by internet express. But I couldn't leave you Pogo-holics in the lurch, so I sped through the scan and cleanup just so's you can have a happy Sunday, Kelly Sunday!

Logger Slang His Rutabagles

I've been working on deadline non-stop, I have one of my worst headaches ever, and this new blogger interface is a booger (hmm, booger blogger — I like that), so I'm amazed that I've been able to scan up and clean up this latest post. BUT, I can't wait for Sunday morning to post it, I've gotta go collapse right now.

Enough about my grumbling, I'm still a lucky man in so many ways. So, Happy Sunday, Kelly Sunday once again to all you Pogoholics!

A Subversive Left-Handed Tide

Good morning world! Happy Sunday Kelly Sunday, Hun (that's not my honeybunch, it's our friend-in-Kelly in Germany).

Woosh, what I don't go through sometimes. This particular strip was in a bad way, with bad registration, ink smears from the printer plates being dirty, and excessive bleed from the other side because of too much ink penetration. The pressmen were really sloppy on this one. But it's no fun reading Pogo like that, so here ya go:

Ain't Only One Frog in the World, Y'Know

I'm pret-ty darn busy, but not so much as to miss a Sunday, Kelly Sunday greeting to you all. I've got a lot to share soon's I can.

Mr. Presidump

I believe this is the last of this particular arc — Grundoon showing us once again the fearlessness of children. This Sunday strip is somewhat toward the end of Kelly's great run and is just ever so slightly starting to wear thin, though many people would argue with that.

By this time in the history of comic sections, the quality of printing suffered in most strips—the pressmen being slapdash and screwloose in their registration of color and cleanliness of their ink rollers. I cleaned up a lot of misregistration and ink splotchiness on this scan, though I ran out of time and a bit is still evident here and there.

Happy Sunday, Kelly Sunday!
