This is a Scrap book put together in the 1950s, it is a collection of Pogo cartoons with a best wishes card from Walt Kelly and is signed. I bought this as part of an estate and I was told this was gifted back in the 70sto the mother in law. Ive compared the signature and it appears to be authentic.The principal characters were Pogo the Possum, Albert the Alligator, Churchy LaFemme cf. Cherchez la femme, a turtle, Howland Owl, Beauregard (Houndog), Porkypine, and Miz Mamzelle Hepzibah, a French skunk. Kelly used the strip in part as a vehicle for his liberal and humanistic political and social views and satirized, among other things, Senator Joseph McCarthy's anti-Communist demagogy in the form of a shotgun-wielding badger named Simple J.
Malarkey and the sectarian and dogmatic behavior of communists in the form of two comically doctrinaire cowbirds. The item "1950s Pogo Comic Scrapbook Signed By Walt Kelly One Of A Kind" is in sale since Sunday, January 28, 2018. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Comics\Newspaper Comics".
