To The Moon Olive!
I was thrilled to get hold of this IDW YOe Books vintage Popeye reprint yesterday. This is my all-time favorite Popeye comic book cover, maybe one of my all-time favorite comic book covers of all time and it's utterly fantastic to own this replica of the actual 1949 issue. Classic Popeye is the best comic book on the stands today, the only one I buy monthly, the one I look forward to. It's nice to be eager again to see a comic book.
It looks like this series is successful, and I couldn't be happier. The misadventures of Popeye and the other denizens of Sweethaven make me smile. These days, I need to smile. We all do.
Here's a look at the earlier issues in the series.
