Walt Kelly was creating Christmas Comics years before Pogo was syndicated. Some of his best stories are included in The Great Treasury of Christmas Comic Book Stories, available at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and other fine comic shops and bookstores. This handsome edition keeps the tradition of Christmas comics alive with a warm-hearted collection of classics from the 1940s and 50s by Kelly and many other artists.
