More Extra Panels


  1. some of these panels seem to be OK just by themselves. charlie

  2. Isn't that funny? I thought so too.

    I think if we isolated most any of Kelly's panels at random they would be OK.

  3. Today, reading an old Comics Journal, # 157, March 1993, articles on the passing of Harvey Kurtzman, comes this Kurtzman recollection: "I happened to take my portfolio up to the newspaper PM around that time. (Walt) Kelly was not just drawing Pogo then but was also the PM editor who interviewed aspiring young cartoonists. He wasn't impressed with my work; as a matter of fact, he gave me the bum's rush. And from that moment on I had no love for Kelly. But I was in the minority, and I can't deny what a great talent he was. After all, what can you say against a man who penned the immortal line: 'We have met the enemy and he is us.'"
