The Thing Next Door!
Well blow me down! I did not know that Popeye the Sailor Man had battled the Undead. This Egmont Album cover from the late 70's shows a ferocious Popeye swinging away on a particularly active vampire. I can't tell if the little above is supposed to be his comrade or it's him transformed. But it's pretty powerful stuff for a comic strip.
Here's a sample from the run by Bud Sagendorf. One source indicates this Popeye series only ran in Europe, but that's all I can find. Anyone know more about this intriguing Sagendorf material and why it's not more readily available in these here parts?
