    Hermes Press is certainly doing the world a favor by reprinting the original Pogo comics in deluxe collected editions. Walt Kelly's philosophical possum is mostly remembered by baby boomers but the stories deserve preservation in a format that will reach their children 's children because these are timeless fables, set in a swamp somewhere southeast of the Hundred Acre Wood. Although the comic books lack the political edge of the daily comic strips or the Simon and Schuster paperbacks, there is Hermes Press is certainly doing the world a favor by reprinting the original Pogo comics in deluxe collected editions.

Although the comic books lack the political edge of the daily comic strips or the Simon and Schuster paperbacks, there is plenty of sophistication here. References to Dr. Lysenko must have gone over the heads of the tads and many of their parents. When Dell played with the page count of the comics, Kelly built it into the stories in a manner that fans of meta-storytelling should appreciate. Nice work too on the color restorations here and the overall package. Super work all around.
