Growing up my family had a huge number of books at hand to read. The ones that really got me started in reading first though were the cartoon books of course. No, we didn’t have “comic books” so much as all the old softbounds of daily comics. Naturally I started with some of the easier to read ones, but as I got better I started reading some of the more ‘wordy’ ones, where characters would exercise their verbosity to extreme degrees.
One of the ones that constantly grabbed my attention was this POGO volume. Now anybody familiar with the Pogo world knows that it is far from an easy read. With his use of deep accents, he presented a very interesting take on the larger world, by casting it all in their little swamp.
Well, I’ve been browsing around trying to find some of this old content, and stumbled upon one book online, and right away, it seemed to play right into today’s hot topics.
