From Volume 5's description:
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.

Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume One; ISBN 978-1-61345-124-3; $34.99; paperback 272 pages; all color; All art and script by Walt Kelly; reprints the first 16 complete Peter Wheat comic books; in-depth essay by comics historian and Walt Kelly expert Dr. Thomas Andrae; afterword by Trina Robbins.
Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat comics are renowned for their humor, artistic flair and appeal to both children and adults. The Peter Wheat comic books are extremely are and have never been collected as a series before, due to their scarcity and rarity. Between 1948 and 1951, Kelly drew thirty-five issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, a sixteen page comic book given away to bakeries to promote Peter Wheat bread. The stories were fairy tales starring Peter Wheat, an elf-sized boy who lived in a hollow tree on the edge of a wheat field where he and the Little Folk battle Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets.
While created with kids in mind the mythology spun in these stories is timeless. “Coupled with Kelly's incredible artwork, this series of stories, which run in arcs, are indispensable in Walt Kelly's canon of work,” commented Dr. Thomas Andrae, editor of this series.
