ART OF POPEYE MASTERWORK OF THE MEDIUM HC (C: 0-1-0)

When cartoonist Elzie Segar created Popeye, as a minor character ten years into the run of the Thimble Theatre strip in 1929, little did he know that the world's most famous sailor would still be around over ninety years later and still being offered as a Sunday feature. To celebrate Popeye, the character, the comic strip and his universe, Hermes Press is publishing the definitive art monograph on the subject. This book features a comprehensive essay written by pop culture historian R.C. Harvey accompanied by over 350 illustrations of original strip and comic book art, animation art, illustrations, advertising art, products, the Robert Altman film, and everything Popeye, from Olive Oyl and Eugene the Jeep to Wimpy and Bluto.
