WHM 2012 Womensfolk of POGO (1)
POGO, the greatest comic-strip in the world, featured literally hundreds of characters in its 20+ years. Of those, several were women. Three of the best-known characters were Miss Mam'selle Hepzibah the skunk, Miz Beaver, and Miss Sis Boombah. All three played important parts in the comic-strip from January thru August 1969 in a storyline that was collected in the trade paperback POGO Prisoner of Love. I'll be back next week with my first profile. For now, here's Pogo surrounded by the swamp womensfolk and a meeting of F.O.O.F. (Female Order of Freedom) as presided over by Miss Sis Boombah, the Rhode Island Red hen.
