"Mr. Owl And The Atomic Bomb"

News of the atom bomb comes to the banks of the Okeefenokee Swamp in this classic tale from Four Color# 148 (May, 1947) that featured the adventures of Albert The Alligator And Pogo Possum. Walt Kelly was a genius at sermonizing sleight-of-hand, disguising his timely messages under layers of slapstick action and English-mangling accents. That's to say nothing of his crisp yet fluid artwork, some of the best ever produced in the comics or any other medium. By the way, bombs suck.
