    Walt Kelly Pogo Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 7-24-69 (Publishers-Hall Syndicate, 1969). For all its laugh-provoking power, Pogo also has a grimmer side, often characterized by Pogo Possum's aversion to matrimony. Besieged here by a room full of willing womenfolk and one annoying mouse, Pogo makes a break for freedom -- only to find himself followed, or tailed, one might say. The nighttime swampland setting lends a chill of dread, but Kelly has a punchline waiting at the end: Always leave 'em laughing. Inscribed at lower margin. Ink over graphite on evenly toned Bristol board. Image area, 20" x 5.5". Condition, Very Good.
