Pogo (Possum)  by Walt Kelly (1140-) 1st daily Appearance October 4, 1948, 1st Sunday January 30, 1950 - Walt Kelly's Pogo was the classic example of integration of modern day satire into a delightful comic-strip.   Pogo and his best buddy Albert Alligator were the stars of the show in the middle of the Okefenokee Swamp.   The swamp that Pogo lived in was home to hundreds of interesting characters who usually reflected a particular opinion on a subject high in the news of the day.  Pogo and Albert had stereotypical drawl vocalisms, big hearts, and sensible observation skills .   Kelly enigineered the characters so that they would often not realize that they were reflecting the intended criticisms of the strip of the day.    The strip is considered one of the high political satires ever drawn, the character Pogo himself ran for president a number of times garnering more than just a couple of votes.   The artwork of Walt Kelly also goes a long way in the popularity of the strip.    The Okefenokee swamp characters were drawn clean and cute with the exaggerated facial expression that make them funny to just look at.   The market for Pogo is very strong.  Offered as tabs, halves or smaller, Tabs are considered premium for the long-time Pogo collectors.    Daillies which are a little less common sell even better than sundays.
