About the Author
Forrest "Bud" Sagendorf (1915 – 1994) wrote and drew more Popeye comic strips and books than any other cartoonist—and wrote and drew them better than all the other swabs! When Bud was just 17, his sister, who worked in an art supply store in Santa Monica, California, introduced him to a customer, E.C. Segar, the creator of Popeye. Bud began a long relationship with Segar who became his teacher, employer, and father figure. After Segar’s passing, Bud produced comic books for 24 years, penned the daily strip, and drew art for licensing products.

I am entranced by Sagendorf's storytelling style; the stories lope along at their own pace, take surreal twists and turns, and are not overly concerned with a dramatic resolution. The characters are genial oddballs, the drawing is classic "bigfoot" cartoon style and Segar continues the universe of his mentor E.C. Segar, a cartoon world unlike any other.
Read and share this series (my nine and ten year old boys love them). Craig Yoe and crew have done an amazing job of presenting these vintage Popeye comics in a sturdy and gorgeous oversized collection with some Popeye extras thrown in.
These are terrific stories. Most of the main characters are here: Popeye, Olive Oyl, Swee'pea, Wimpy and Pappy. Noticeably absent is Bluto/Brutus. This is possibly due to copyright concerns at the time. However the stories are so well crafted (great plots, humor and characters that ring true) that I didn't notice his absence at first.
These comics are in color which adds a dimension to the stories. They have also been restored which makes this book beautiful to look at.
I recommend this book to readers of all ages.
