Both volumes illustrated in both b/w and color. "From '48 til half past '73, Walt Kelly's Pogo was one of the brightest spots on any newspaper comics page fortunate enough to have it - bright in terns of its characters (colorful even in the black and white dailies) and bright in the sense of being witty and smart..... This very dust jacket adorns the first of 12 volumes that will finally collect the entire run of what many call the best damn newspaper strip of all time." - Publisher
