Walt Kelly is the creator of the legendary Pogo comic strip. He was born in 1913 and passed away in 1973.
Pogo is one of Fantagraphics' most successful comic strip reprint series, along with Peanuts and Prince Valiant. For decades, hundreds of thousands of Americans woke up to Pogo in their morning paper. Pogo was ahead of its time on political issues: it went where other newspaper strips feared to tread. An important addition into the comic book canon, having great historical significance. Ideal for any Pogo fan and any reader with a strong interest in the history of comic books and cartoons.
