Pogo: The Complete Syndicated Comic Strips Volume 1: Through the Wild Blue Wonder

Product Review (submitted on January 31, 2012):
When Fantagraphics began their series of Peanuts archival releases, I was surprised at how many of my favorite cartoonists took the opportunity to wax nostalgic for the formulaic genius that was Charles M. Schulz. This year I was also shocked at how quiet many of those very same cartoonists were about Fantagraphics finally getting around to releasing the first volume of Kelly's Pogo. What the hell? This is epic, profoundly influential masterpiece material here. I guess there's just no substitute for the predictability of Charlie Brown not being able to kick that football. Good grief!
