Details

Walt Kelly's Pogo first appeared in Animal Comics, in Dell's Four Color series, and finally in its own title, Pogo Possum, in 1949. This sixth volume finishes off the complete reprints with Pogo Parade, a Pogo story from Our Gang #6, a Pogo Christmas Story from Four Color #254, an unpublished Pogo story, an unpublished Pogo Possum cover, original art from the series, including complete stories and a superlative full color gallery containing all of the Pogo Possum covers and bonus art!

Also, expert Thomas Andre presents a wonderfully illustrated introduction, 17 pages dealing with "Little Black Sambo, Bumbazine, and the Racial Representation in Pogo.” Here Andre explains how Kelly first featured his little black boy Bumbazine as the central character in the stories. But after Animal Comics #12 (1944), he eliminated Bumbazine from the feature. ...[Kelly] transferred Bumbazine's qualities of "innocence, naiveté, friendliness, and sturdy dependability" to Pogo and made him the lead along with Albert.

And more: an afterword looks at "The Art of Pogo" and examines even more work from original art. We are treated to Pogo model sheets, a second complete story from Pogo #5 in original art (the unpublished story is also from original art) and finally, a handsome unpublished cover from the Pogo comics series. They pulled out all the stops for this final volume.
