Pogo Parade #1

I picked up this great Walt Kelly comic book for only $10! For some reason, comic books by two of my favorite creators, Walt Kelly and Carl Barks have actually gone down in demand. This means that I've been able to buy back issues by both men for a fraction of the cost of what these book commanded back when I was dealing collectibles. I don't know if these books will ever be in demand again, but I really don't care. I'm just buying them to read and enjoy.

Very nice. I'm always hoping I can eventually pick up a Walt Kelly original art page someday.

The strange thing about Walt Kelly originals is that I see them selling for the same amount today as they did in the early 80s when I first started noticing original comic artwork. His fan base has aged and passed on, it seems.
