New Release from Fantagraphics: Popeye Vol. 6: “Me Li’l Swee’Pea”

Elzie C. Segar, the creator of THIMBLE THEATRE and comics icon Popeye the Sailor Man, died at the young age of 44. He left behind less than a decade’s worth of strips and a pop-culture legacy that spans more than eight decades! In tribute, Fantagraphics has published six volumes of Segar’s collective work. “POPEYE VOL. 6: ME LI’L SWEE’PEA” is the sixth volume, and is, in fact, the final one. It is now available for collectors and comics fans to purchase and enjoy.

 ”POPEYE VOL. 6: ME LI’L SWEE’PEA” features the return of the Sea Hag and the Goon and includes 62 full-page, full-color Sundays featuring the adventures of Popeye and an epically surreal six-month interplanetary voyage for Sappo, the star of Popeye’s “top strip.” In addition, the book includes an illustrated Segar-written biography of Popeye, which was originally serialized in newspapers of the time, as well as rare art and photos.
