Are we ever going to see a Peter Wheat collection of some kind?: I see these lovely looking Walt Kelly Peter Wheat comics linked to here and there on the comics blogosphere every few months or so.

Of course, maybe I’m just bitter because if I would have kept my copy of Mouse Guard until today, I could trade it in for five tanks of gas…
