Walt Kelly's Pogo: The Complete Dell Comics Volume Six


Following on the heels of Hermes Press’ critically acclaimed Eisner nominated reprint of Walt Kelly’s Pogo stories from Animal Comics, Four Color Comics, and Pogo Possum in Walt Kelly’s Pogo the Complete Dell Comics Volumes One and Two ― with Volume Five having been released in December 2017― this sixth volume finishes off the complete reprint with Pogo Parade, a rare unpublished Pogo comic book, and more! Also included is a historical essay by noted comics historian Thomas Andrae.

Walt Kelly’s Pogo, acknowledged as one of the most important and influential comic strips of all time, first appeared not in newspapers but as a feature in the Dell comic book anthology Animal Comics, as well as in Dell’s Four Color Comics before getting its own title, Pogo Possum in 1949.

It was here, in the four color world of comic books, that the feature and its characters grew and matured, ultimately becoming one of the world’s most famous comic strips.

Now fans of Pogo can see it all from the beginning with Hermes Press’ reprint of the complete Dell Comics Pogo. Noted comics historian Thomas Andrae observed that with Pogo, “Walt Kelly created a strip that is both poetic and graphically stunning as well as an important commentary on our times.”

With Hermes Press’ complete reprint of Dell Comics Pogo admirers of this groundbreaking comics feature can now witness the strip’s evolution, in an archival hardcover, digitally reconstructed to perfection.

 The Phantom: The Complete Newspaper Dailies Volume 13


The critically acclaimed, best selling complete reprint of The Phantom continues!
Referred to by comic strip historian Maurice Horn as the “granddaddy of all costumed superheroes,” The Phantom was created in 1936 by Lee Falk with artwork by Ray Moore.  The strip hit the funny pages of newspapers well before the Dark Knight or Superman made their first appearances and has been acknowledged as an influence on every “masked man of mystery” since.  The Phantom set the standard for action, adventure, intrigue, and romance in adventure comic strips and comic books – it has frequently been copied but never equaled.

Included in this volume are seven complete continuities, reprinted for the first time in their entirety, “The Slimming of Prince Tagon,” “Captain Kidder’s Treasure,” “Dr Axel and the Witchmen,” “Queen Sansamor and the Sixth Man,” “The Wisdom of Solomon,” “U-Town,” and “The Grove of the Sleeping Giant.” Strips from this issue are taken directly from King Feature’s proofs.

Hermes Press is proud to announce that they will be publishing all fifteen pocket Avon books, starting in August 2016 and continuing until the conclusion of the series in Volume 15!

Famed artist George Wilson (Dr. SolarMagnus Robot FighterThe Phantom) painted the cover for Volume #7 as he did with all of the covers used for the Avon series, and they are reproduced beautifully to keep all of the details from the original books intact for a new generation of Phans to enjoy!

A palatial 200 foot yacht, “The Sea Horse” – a luxurious private island guarded by fierce dogs – all the property of the suave and charming Chris Danton.

What is the source of his seemingly inexhaustible wealth? What is the grim secret behind the “ageless” smile of the master of The Sea Horse?

The Phantom's sweetheart, beautiful Diana Palmer, innocently stumbles into Danton's web and finds herself caught up in an evil conspiracy from which she can be saved only by the power and ingenuity of the Phantom – The Ghost Who Walks.

What is the meaning of HYDRA – a mysterious evil that spans oceans and continents? Who are the black clad men– with V's tattooed on shaven skulls – who appear in the wake of wars, earthquakes, fires, and other catastrophes?

The final mumbled words of a dying man draw the PHANTOM into an amazing web of violence, crime, and murder – the web of THE HYDRA MONSTER.
