From the publisher:

The Library of American Comics proudly presents a long-neglected classic -- King Aroo! Lauded by critics in the pantheon of great strips such as Krazy Kat, Pogo, and Barnaby, Jack Kent's brilliantly conceived world brought smiles to young and old alike with its fanciful array of clever puns, visual humor, and good old slapstick. The postage-stamp-sized kingdom of Myopia is presided over by kindly King Aroo and his faithful (if sometimes prickly) retainer, Yupyop. The King turns to Professor Yorgle for wisdom, Wanda Witch for magic spells, the kangaroo mailman, Mr. Pennipost, for news from far and wide...and looks for love from the Beautiful Princess From the Kingdom Next Door.

Volume One celebrates the strip's 60th anniversary by presenting every daily and Sunday strip from the beginning in 1950 through 1952, reproduced from original artwork and syndicate proofs from the Jack Kent Estate. The series is edited and designed by Eisner Award-winner, Dean Mullaney, with an illuminating biographical text feature by Bruce Canwell, and an introduction by Sergio Aragones.
