Description

    Fairy Tale Parade #1 Mile High pedigree (Dell, 1942) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. Pogo creator Walt Kelly had a long and varied career at Dell Comics during the 1940s. Here's a book that must have been a real labor of love for the cartoonist -- the first issue of Fairy Tale Parade. Kelly's love of these passed-down fables (including in this issue: Thumbelina, Hansel and Gretel, and Little Black Sambo) is evident to all who admire his work; even his book collections of Pogo strips often have special material based on these beloved tales. Kelly's art was never better than his work here, and this superb copy's wonderful condition is the icing on the cake. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $2,400. CGC census 4/11: 3 in 9.2, 1 higher.
