Popeye: The Best Comic Book Stories of Bud Sagendorf
Bud Sagendorf (w & a)
There are three genius incarnations of Popeye, the comic strip by E.C. Segar, the animations by Max Fleischer, and-unknown to many-the brilliant 1940s and '50s comic book stories by Bud Sagendorf! Comics historian Craig Yoe collects and beautifully packages the best of the best of Sagendorf's thrilling and roll-on-the-floor laughing tales. See the Sea Hag, Bluto, and, of course, Olive Oyl, Wimpy, and Sweepea join Popeye in exciting adventures-and brilliant comic book stories. Sagendorf worked as Popeye's creator Segar for many years, learning all the craft, soaking in the zaniness and the uniqueness that is the One-eyed Sailor. Sagendorf penned these tales with love and skill-even adding some of his own unique characters.
