The Little People-Walt Kelly-1936

Only one lonely page today but quite an interesting one. You'll note that this page of IRISH TALES is by Walt Kelly, creator of POGO and longtime Dell artist. What you can't tell from this however, is that this page is, in fact, from a National Periodicals Publication! I won't even say DC because this MOE FUN COMICS issue was published in 1936, BEFORE the first issue of DETECTIVE COMICS itself! And also more than a decade before POGO hit the newspapers! Walt Kelly was only 23 years old at the time.
