    Description

    Walt Kelly Pogo Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-29-68 (Publishers-Hall, 1968). A BIG piece, at nearly two feet in width. Pogo Possum sets out to contemplate the closing days of 1968 -- alone, preferably. No such luck, as his swampland friends come along to join Pogo in his attempted solitude. In a subtle touch characteristic of Kelly, the old year is symbolized as a sinking boat. Also typical of Kelly, the lettering on the boat changes from panel to panel. The major Pogo characters, and a few supporting critters, are depicted in glorious detail in this magnificently designed spread. Ink over blue pencil on Bristol board, with an image area of 23.5" x 16". Faint toning and marginal adhesive residue, with slight adhesive discoloration on the logotype (in the first panel). Excellent condition.
