The publisher first unveiled its plans for a 12-volume collection of the Walt Kelly comic strip in February 2007, but nothing has emerged regarding the project since, reports Robot 6.
"[A] new year is upon and it’s time to 'fess up about all the late Fantagraphics titles you were expecting to have by now, and don't, because we suck," co-publisher Kim Thompson wrote on the company’s blog.
"Specific apologia and weaselling have been added to some titles, others we just pass under mortified silence. 2011 will be better!"
Thompson listed 22 titles due for release this year, including volume one of The Complete Pogo Daily & Sunday Comics Strips, which will be available in the autumn.
