Pogo and The Spirit

Few children reading Dell’s Four-Color #105 (© 2021 Oskar Lebeck) had any idea that the men on the wanted posters were Walt Kelly’s fellow creators. The gag of Will Eisner’s Spirit newspaper insert for December 31, 1950 (© 2021 Will Eisner Studios, Inc.) was the subversion of the creator’s assistant. But few readers knew that the gun-toting villain was actually drawn to look like assistant Jules Feiffer.
