Hey Kids, Comickals!

April Fools Day is a time for lightening things up a bit, so let’s sit back and enjoy a Walt Kelly classic from Pogo Possum #5 (Dell Publishing, 1951).

Here’s “The Big Comickal Book Business,” proof positive that the residents of the Okefenokee Swamp were “meta” before most people even knew what “meta” meant.

Story and art are by Kelly.
