Walt Kelly’s 1954 & 1956 Pogo Christmas Cards

Happy Holidays to all of the I.T.C.H. bloggers and readers!

Walt Kelly celebrated Christmas throughout the 1950s and 60s with a wonderful series of Christmas cards that reproduced his annual Christmas strip with a splash of color. The cards were printed on deckle-edged, letter-size sheets and folded in quarters to fit in envelopes for mailing.

The Great Stein Way!

I think Milt Stein’s (1921–1977) style in comic books shows his affinity for animation as much as Otto Messmer’s did when he was drawing the beautiful Felix comic books and strips. It’s such a round, happy style! Milt’s approach is so positive, I was surprised and saddened to hear he may have taken his own life. I don’t know much more about him, though, aside from him working on The Return to Oz animated feature.  I always asked old cartoonists if they had an knowledge about his life, with no results, really. None of the people I have interviewed even remembered him at all or his comics, which just shocked me because he was so very good. Once, while talking to Vince Fago, I forgot to ask if he knew of Milt. Vince was possibly Stein’s editor at Timely and may have had some info. Regrets!

I’m thrilled to be reprinting the following story in my new book, The Golden Collection of Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics. I’m happy to preview it here, on ITCH, too.  I understand there is going to be a review of the book on Cartoon Brew today or real soon. I hope some readers will find their way to ITCH via Jerry Beck’s review and I want to welcome them and the esteemed member of the animation community here. Scrolling down, you’ll see all the great stuff on ITCH by my fellow esteemed contributors. And down a ways you’ll spy another strip by an animation guy, Jim Tyer. That’s a The Golden Collection of Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics preview, too. As they say, enjoy!

KKKKK

I ‘m quite excited, my new book The Golden Collection of Klassic Krazy Kool Kids Komics is coming to comic shops this Wednesday, regular bookstores momentarily and of course is available for ordering online now. I’ll present a bunch of freebie previews. I humbly think the material I’ve gathered in this huge brick of a book is rare and wonderful. Take f’instance this great story by the great John Stanley, my old friend and neighbor, if you’ll pardon the name dropping. I love the balls he had just putting a hint of red on the cheeks–how did he get the editors to buy no color on the skin–very design-y cool. And, of course the dinosaur and caveman story line is awesome. This appeared in Raggedy Ann and Andy #35, 1949. John did a cover for this story, too, that’s in KKKKKK. It’s weird to have an albino character named Peterkin Pottle riding a dino as a cover to a Raggedy Ann book. Only in Golden Age comics! Welp, enjoy the funny Stanley story now order the book for all kinds of wonderful kids komics here.
