            Collection of items originally sent to Walter Lister of San Francisco, who shared his name with Pogo's boat. After writing to Kelly about the coincidence, Kelly sent the following items: first, an original hand-inked four-panel Pogo comic strip, dated February 11, on a 17 x 5.75 sheet of artist's cardstock. Strip depicts Pogo and his friends on their boat, with "Walter Lister" added to the boat in three panels by Kelly, and signed and inscribed in the lower border, "With all the best to Walter Lister, sincerely, Walt Kelly." Kelly has also affixed three Pogo pins to the top of the strip. Second, a 1952 TLS from Kelly to Lister, which reads: "The boat was named for Walter Lister, managing editor of the Philadelphia Bulletin. The original was sent to him, otherwise I would have been glad to send it to you. However, I will send you a strip properly revised." Accompanied by the original mailing envelope and several news clippings of Lister posing with the comic strip. In fine condition, with a central horizontal fold to strip, as well as a few pencil notations. All items originate from the estate of Walter Lister.

            Walt Kelly Pogo Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 8

            Est: -

            Walt Kelly Pogo Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-11-63 (Publishers-Hall Syndicate, 1963). Albert and a bug find themselves lost in the swamp as this Sunday strip opens, but what a place to be lost: Walt Kelly grass grows over Walt Kelly roots, and Kelly moss hangs from Kelly trees. Maybe they don't appreciate the fact that they're lost in the Okeefenokee in one of America's greatest comic strips, but we sure do. Add to the beautiful drawing, Kelly's ongoing patter ("Are we downhearted?" "Yes!"), plus a healthy dose of silliness in the person of Beauregard J. Bugleboy the hound, and you've got enough glee and perloo to go around twice. This is 16" x 23.5" of art on a 17" x 26" page. The three tiers of art have been cut and re-taped together on the back, and there are four tape marks on the front sides; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition.
