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 was created by E.C. Segar in a Santa Monica studio on Jan. 17, 1929. According to the story line, Popeye was born off the coast of Santa Monica during a typhoon. Popeye’s popularity and his taste for spinach quickly turned him into an immediate health food advocate.
Santa Monica provides a healthy dining experience year round where fresh Farmers Market produce plays a central role. Dine local and learn more about Eat Well Week and Santa Monica’s wellness scene, by visiting http://www.santamonica.com/eatwell.
