Classic Popeye Comics #9 by Bud Sagendorf (w & a & c) is now on sale!
“This comic book contains the singular most bizarre and hilarious comic book story in the history of comic books and anyone that disagrees with me will feel the wrath of me twister-sock,” proclaims feisty Classic Popeye co-editor Craig Yoe.
Popeye, Olive Oyl and Swee’ Pea will return to the sailorman’s Santa Monica hometown to kick off the city’s inaugural Eat Well Week. To celebrate California Restaurant Month, more than a dozen of Santa Monica’s top restaurants will offer discounted pre-fixe menus and new healthy menu options from Jan. 6 through Jan. 13, 2013. To launch the occasion, Popeye will join three participating Eat Well Week restaurants—Locando del Lago, The Lobster and Ocean & Vine at Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel—to create “Popeye Pop-ups,” featuring healthy spinach-inspired dishes and recipes on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wednesday Downtown Farmers Market.
Popeye #3, the latest POPEYE comic book from IDW Publishing, is now on sale! Co-edited by IDW CEO Ted Adams and legendary comics historian Craig Yoe, Popeye #3 was written by Roger Langridge with art drawn by Tom Neely.
In Popeye #3, Swee’Pea runs away from home and gets hooked up with a gang of kids from The Wrong Side of the Tracks. Popeye has to go after him… taking on all comers along the way! Can Popeye find Swee’Pea before he gets a tattoo?
