Walt Kelly's Bread-Based 'Peter Wheat' Gets New Collection
Legendary cartoonist Walt Kelly has a new collection arriving soon from Hermes Press, and if you only know him from Pogo, this looks to be exciting and new! The Adventures of Peter Wheat was a 16-page comic book that was offered as a giveaway at bakeries, as a promotion for Peter Wheat bread. The protagonist, Peter Wheat, is a tiny elf boy who lives in a tree by a field of wheat, and has small-scale fairytale adventures, involving characters like Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets.
