Dutch Treat

It seems the fellers tried blasting off for Mars any number of times over their years with Kelly. Because that's the gimmick of this whole Pandemonia thing, here are some pages from the fifties that saw print in a Dutch fan publication, StripSchrift. Great thanks to Norman Boyd for sending over this Dutch treat.

You don't need to know Dutch very well to be able to follow along, in fact 'Gobby Wombies' translates pretty well.

Rare Treat

There's not been any new business in Pandemonia for quite a spell. But there's breaking news over at Whirled of Kelly.

Coming up soon will be the premier posting of the first three issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, Walt Kelly's adventure fantasy. Issues from this series are extremely scarce, but showcasing issues 1, 2 and 3, in order, is a rare treat indeed, courtesy of our friend OtherEric of the Digital Comic Museum.

Head on over to Whirled of Kelly, to see it unfold.. Here's a sneak preview panel:

This is not strictly related to Pandemonia, but just in case you toon in here but not at Whirled of Kelly, I thought you might enjoy this 1952 Walt Kelly drawing.

Abandoned on the Martian Ice Cap

Over the years, the boys have had the dream of reaching Mars any number of times. I believe they've tried for some of the other planets, and I know they've even had ambitions to land on the sun. Here Churchy is figgerin' to get to Mars some 14 years before he makes it as far as Pandemonia.
