More Pogo: Volume Two brings in P.T. Bridgeport
Bonafide Balderdash, the second volume of Fantagraphic's reprinting of the entire 26 year run of Walt Kelly's comic strip pogo came out a couple of months ago. Two years are covered in each Pogo edition. (Volume one had a bonus multi-month section of Pogo's initial run in the leftist newspaper The Star; when that paper ceased publication, the strip was reborn in syndication.) We’re in the early 1950s now, and Kelly is dropping references to McCarthyism and Eisenhower's presidency.
