Thread Name: nostalgia...Pogo does F.J. Child
Subject: RE: nostalgia...Pogo does F.J. Child
When I was in college in the mid-50s, there were four comic strips we all read every day: Dennis the Menace, Peanuts, Lil Abner, and (of course) Pogo. It was then that I got my real introduction to literature--the real stuff rather than the stuff they taught in school. I went on to Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, and even to G. K. Chesterton. But to this day, I still believe that Walt Kelly was the master of them all--including Ketchum, Capp, and Schultz.
