Frank Caruso, Vice President of Creative at King Features, collaborated with cartoonist Stephen DeStefano, on this special comic strip featuring Olive Oyl and Popeye checking into The Standard, Hollywood. In the strip, Popeye is dropping Olive off at The Standard where she reports to work as the hotel’s popular “box girl.” The comic strip is currently running on the homepage of The Standard’s Culture website at www.standardculture.com. Pretty cool, huh? To see more of what sassy Miss Olive Oyl is up to these days, check out OliveOylLoves.com.
The Official Olive Oyl website is now live! Oliveoylloves.com is a fashion blog for style mavens, risk takers and true innovators who see a bit of themselves in Olive Oyl’s passionate and independent approach to life, love and fashion. A comics icon and hopeless romantic, Olive Oyl defies the standard definition of beauty. She isn’t afraid to pursue her passions with her heart on her sleeve, her eye on the prize and a fire in her belly. From the comics page to the big screen, Olive Oyl has done it all. And, now she is baring her heart and soul and sharing her insights online at www.oliveoylloves.com.
