YEOWK!

 

Mike beat me to the famous Walt Kelly phrase,
but here are a few examples of Churchy’s paraskevidekatriaphobia.

 

An early superstition strip:

 

 

A week of Pogo and a weak Churchy:

 

Whistling past the graveyard.

 

HORRA-BLATZ!

Thomas Haller Buchanan’s Pogo in Pandemonia and Whirled of Kelly
and Fantagraphics’ Complete Syndicated Pogo by Walt Kelly.

“THE TRUMP OF DOOM” (Pogo, 8/11/65) has a whole different meaning these days, don’ it?

Thanks for these, I always loved Kelly’s take on Friday the 13th– especially if it fell on some other day than Friday!

I’m especially happy to see the 1965 “Trump of Doom” strip, since I happen to have the original hanging on my wall! What a terrific coincidence!

For my money, Walt Kelly is one of the All Time Top Three, and there are a lot of days I’d name him Number One.

At least Buckles is keeping the ol’ Churchy spirit alive… Check out today’s strip.

And if that don’t give you the mary-hoo-ha, this here Friday the thirteen has got itself a full moon.
