Walt Kelly Our Gang stories from 16-23. Showing him coming into his own pre-Pogo in both art and story. Now I want Vol. 4. Here the kids go on adventures, fight criminals, help a bankrupt circus..typical kid stuff. Froggy, Buckywheat (later Bucky), and Janet are here, along with some Kelly creations, from the later MGM shorts. Too bad Kelly couldn’t have used the earlier cast members, but when it started Kelly was trying to replicate the shorts, and by the end he was off on his own. The Fantagraphs reproduction is very nice.
