This second volume in the long-delayed but now annual collection of Kelly’s classic comic strip covers the years 1951–52. His hallmarks of deft wordplay, daft swamp critters, and poisonously sharp sociopolitical satire are in full blossom here. The highlight is the 1952 election season that saw Pogo’s first and entirely reluctant presidential run and the birth of the “I Go Pogo” slogan. Mimicking “I Like Ike,” it became a massively popular campaign button that helped cement Kelly’s popularity among wise-ass college kids everywhere. A must for all collections of comic-strip history. --Ian Chipman
