Walt Kelly's Pogo: Mr. Pig and Fido the Liberator

Once again, Walt Kelly dazzles with his original brushed ink artwork for a daily Pogo comic strip, this time from 1962. Mr. Pig and Fido the Liberator are mentioned but do not appear in this strip. Mr. Pig represents Nikita Kruschev and Fido the Liberator is a goat who looks remarkably like, as you might guess, Fidel Castro.
