POGO Color Guide Walt Kelly and George Ward 1973 Comic Strip VERY RARE

Price: $3,500.00

Ships To: United States (exclusions)
Shipping: $50.00 (USPS)

Here is an original color guide for the Pogo Comic Strip that were created by Walt Kelly. This was either done by Walk Kelly himself and/or his assistant George Ward. There is some wear on this and it looks like the page was folded in half at one point.

Condition:
I've included photos of the front and back to show the condition. For the 2nd and 3rd photos, I purposely took it in lighting that would highlight the flaws (lighting from an angle with shadows). But, I actually think it looks better in person compared to the photos (more like the 1st photo). There is a small tear on the middle right of the page. You can see this in the photos as well. Anyways, just wanted to show clearly what the condition is.

Measures approximately 16"x11" (inches).

What makes this piece so rare?
The main reason is because you can't find these being sold anywhere. You'll find original POGO (black and white) art being sold, but the color guides for POGO are almost non existent. Also, a lot of the POGO comics are in black and white too, so they didn't use a color guide for those. So the availability of these were very small to begin with (assuming any of them survived).

Most of the time, color guides were thrown away and the process of creating color guides are no longer used today. So you are getting a piece of history. Not only that, it is of POGO, created by one of the greatest cartoonists who ever lived!

This piece gives you a rare peak at how the original colors were meant to look like. Unlike the dull colors in the newspapers, the colors on this guide are vibrant.

What are Color Guides?
Color guides are created by making a copy of the black and white art. Then original colors are added in with codes to act for a guide for the printer. The colors are vibrant and show how the artist wanted the colors to be.

Will ship with insurance and delivery confirmation.
