Walt Kelly's Pogo: "Boom is How it Goes"

Like many of Walt Kelly's Pogo comic strips, the subject matter of this 1956 Sunday strip seems directly related to the militarism of the Cold War. Pogo strips are always well-drawn but looking at this original artwork panel by panel reminds us just how well-inked this strip is as well. Brush pen is expertly applied over blue pencil by the great Walt Kelly.
