It’s been a fun ride, but all good things must come to an end! Popeye #12, the last in the Popeye original comic book series from IDW Publishing, is now on sale. Cartoonist Roger Langridge has gicen a voice to Popeye and his salty crew throughout the entire series as the writer. So before we bid a fond farewell, we asked Roger to answer a few questions before he moves on to other spinach-colored pastures. Here’s what he had to say…
