It may be the information age, but there are so many mysteries yet unsolved….
Someday we’ll find out of the critters have souls.
After we’re done eating them, I mean.
Ty the Guy OUT!
This is the oldest of my many, many Walt Kelly ANIMAL COMICS I’ve picked up over the years.
You can see proto-Albert and proto-Churchie in the drawing. Pogo, one assumes, is off sleeping somewhere before his debut.
I’m still crazed for Kelly and Pogo, but haven’t picked up any new issues for a while, as they’re no longer dirt cheap “kiddie comics” that no one wants, like they were when I was young. Apparently Golden-Age “animals” are popular now.
By the way, Flounder, like all flatfish, have what is called the “wandering eye mutation”, one of the more controversial elements of the evolution/intelligent design debate. Once a joke gets explained, it’s no longer funny, so I’m explaining it here, long after it wasn’t funny to begin with.
