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 Sangendorf! Comics historian Craig Yoe collects and beautifully packages the best of the best of Sangendorf'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.
"A handsome new book!"
--Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post
"Craig Yoe has dug up never-published artwork, artifacts, and letters that will bring Herriman to life for the uninitiated while giving fans something new to feast on."
--Chris Nichols, LA Magazine
"Yoe's affection for the subject and its creator is clear from the loving attention to detail found from cover to cover."
