Our third volume (of six) of the acclaimed hit all-ages series collecting the entirety of E.C. Segar's original Popeye (a.k.a. Thimble Theatre) comic strips features work from 1932 to 1934. In addition to the daily and Sunday strips, this volume will present a true collector's item: Segar's never-reprinted two-week "World's Fair" continuity. This sequence has never been republished since its original publication 75 years ago. This volume will also contain the conclusion of Donald Phelps's incisive and articulate critical essay on Segar's work "Real People, Real Theatre," and Richard Marschall's insightful analysis of Segar's continuity and story techniques. E.C. Segar blended complex narratives, slapstick traditions, brilliant characterization, and an inimitable cartooning style to create the most exciting and profound humor of his era.

Review:

Hilarious and adventurous, Fantagraphics' Popeye edition is a yearly highlight. -- Michael C. Lorah

Hilarious and adventurous, Fantagraphics Popeye edition is a yearly highlight. --Michael C. Lorah

None of his successors approached his felicitous blending of vigorous cartooning and spellbinding narrative. Modern audiences who know Popeye and his supporting cast only through later animated cartoons will be surprised by the richness of his original incarnation--Gordon Flagg

The daily adventures of this very American character literally changed the face of comic strips.--Frank Santoro

Though his drawing style features exaggerated cartoons, Segar's characters are quite "real."--Frank Santoro
