And finally (drumroll please), the Pogo "Mars" sequence is ready to start rolling. It is so saturated with Kellyness that I decided to let the sequence have its own 'blog. The image below is the header, and this is where you can find it: Pogo in Pandemonia
There is another blog, The Fabulous Fifties, that intends to showcase the sequence as well, and who knows maybe others have or will be showing it around the world. But my showcase will be in pretty high resolution and from my perspective of having talked with Kelly about the sequence before it was ever published (as explained already in Pogo in Pandemonia). My one shortcoming is that the Sunday strips, that I collected week by week when they were first published, are the tabloid format, dropping one panel from each page each week. Maybe we'll be able to see those over at The Fabulous Fifties.
But the run that I have is pretty complete, and I'm going to begin the run at the first week of 1966 to include all the build-up. It will be more than a year's worth of material, but it certainly won't take that long to see it, as I will show up to a month's worth at any one posting.
Stop in, hope to see you there, hope to see some comments.
Princess Pam is a gorgeous 4 pages, thanks also to Joe Chiodo's colors. It's terrific that there was no violence in the story, even if the ending is sad. What's really sad is that we don't have more stories of this sort.

People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
