New Popeye Comic Book


Not sure if this is exclusive to Best Buy, but I recently purchased volume 3 of the wonderful POPEYE cartoon collections they've been releasing and it comes with a mini-comic! The mini-comic reprints, in full color, Segar's classic 1934 adventure with the Sea Hag and Alice the Goon. All of the then-regulars of the THIMBLE THEATRE strip appear and a lot of time is given to J. Wellington Wimpy, here with his portable meat grinder and a knife which he uses to make hamburgers out of...well...anything he can! The comic plugs the great Fantagraphics reprints series so I presume it was packaged by them. A fun item and a potential future collector's item in its own right!
