Tiny Folk and the Giant-Walt Kelly-1945

Happy 100th birthday to Walt Kelly yesterday! If you're familiar with Kelly's POGO, you know it reached a standard of excellence in both comic books and strips that is hard to beat. But Kelly did so much more before he left comic books and all of it had a special delight and magic for young and old alike that has rarely been seen again. Here, from a FAIRY TALE PARADE issue of Dell's FOUR COLOR series, is a great example--an obvious kids story but genuinely amusing for adults as well, both in story and art.
