Classic Popeye #3

Bud Sagendorf (w & a & c)

Is this a horror comic or a humor comic? Chills or chuckles?! You’ll have to decide when you read what its great cartoonist Bud Sagendorf described as “a mysterious mystery entitled ‘Ghost Island!’ An amphibious tale of phantoms and monsters of the darkness—starring POPEYE!”  But wait, there’s more! Bud introduces a second story by penning these words: “Thimble Theater presents a heart-warming homespun tale of pugilistic love entitled SMASH!” This arf-filled issue of vintage One-Eyed Sailor, Olive Oyl and Swee’pee comics also includes the usual wonderful Sagendorf one-pagers and a very special way-cool map of Popeye’s adventures!
