Walt Kelly's Pogo: the Complete Dell Comics Volume Five; ISBN: 978-1-61345-127-4; 192; all color; all art and script by Walt Kelly; hardcover; $50.
Following on the heels of Hermes Press’ critically acclaimed Eisner nominated reprint of Walt Kelly’s Pogo stories from Animal Comics, Four Color Comics, and Pogo Possum in Walt Kelly’s Pogo the Complete Dell Comics Volumes One and Two ― with Volume Four having been released in November 2016― this fifth volume reprints the even more issues of Pogo Possum, #12-#14.
Walt Kelly’s Pogo, acknowledged as one of the most important and influential comic strips of all time, first appeared not in newspapers but as a feature in the Dell comic book anthology Animal Comics, as well as in Dell’s Four Color Comics before getting its own title, Pogo Possum in 1949.
It was here, in the four color world of comic books, that the feature and its characters grew and matured, ultimately becoming one of the world’s most famous comic strips.
Now fans of Pogo can see it all from the beginning with Hermes Press’ reprint of the complete Dell Comics Pogo. Noted comics historian Thomas Andrae observed that with Pogo, “Walt Kelly created a strip that is both poetic and graphically stunning as well as an important commentary on our times.”
With Hermes Press’ complete reprint of Dell Comics Pogo admirers of this groundbreaking comics feature can now witness the strip’s evolution, in an archival hardcover, digitally reconstructed to perfection.

SLIGHT COSMETIC DAMAGE
The critically acclaimed, best selling complete reprint of The Phantom continues!
Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the “granddaddy of all costumed superheroes,” The Phantom was created in 1936 by Lee Falk with artwork by Sy Barry. The strip hit the funny pages of newspapers well before the Dark Knight or Superman made their first appearances and has been acknowledged as an influence on every “masked man of mystery” since. The Phantom set the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books - it has frequently been copied but never equaled.
This exciting 19th volume continues the SY BARRY YEARS! Reprinted in all its black and white glory, journey with Hermes Press as we bring you four complete continuities drawn by Sy himself: “The Bad Ones,” “The Hanta Witch,” “Prince Hali and the White Stallion,” “Bullet’s Town,” and “The Killer.” Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature’s proofs.
Included in the volume is a comprehensive essay and documentary materials.
