As with many
of the Pogo fans and collectors, I am of the Pogo generation. I got my first
"I Go Pogo" button in 1952. I bought the books and comics as they were
published. Then I moved, got a job, got married, and lost track of Pogo. When my
older son was about ten, I bought him "Ten Ever-loviní Blue-eyed Years
With Pogo". When I read it, I was instantly hooked on Pogo again. My books
and comics had vanished, somewhere between adolescence and adulthood, so I had
to replace everything. One thing led to another and I now own several original
comic strips, all of the books,
all of the "Pogo" comics, an "army" of figures (see photo to
the right), posters, pin-back buttons and anything else I could find that
related to Pogo.
More than 20 years have passed since my pogo revival, and I have a
rather complete collection. However, there were still thrills to come...
