Covey talks Popeye
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Popeye 18 Sep 2008 8:14 AM

  

You know, I see Jacob Covey every day but somehow every time I read an interview with him I learn something new. Reading his comments on the design of Popeye, a project/topic I would have thought we'd exhausted in office talk, is fascinating peek into the thought processes that go into graphic design.

From McSweeney's: Plato's Allegory of the Cave, as explained by Popeye to Bluto. "I'm gonna explain ta yer that we's is either dumb or not so dumb, accordin' ta how ya figger out this allergorter..."

David Lasky, whose birthday is today, points out that it is also the birthday of Popeye creator E.C. Segar.

Yet another reason to celebrate with us at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery 1st Anniversary party, starting in less than half an hour...

(My Google image search for "Popeye birthday" bore no amusing fruit.)

Wimpy in the news
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Popeyelife imitates comics 21 Nov 2007 12:14 PM
With uncanny timing, this article in the Asia Times uses J. Wellington Wimpy as a metaphor for some sort of financial-market phenomenon that goes straight over my head. (Via Spurge.)

Popeye Vol. 2: "Well Blow Me Down!"
by E.C. Segar

Our second volume (of six) of the acclaimed hit series collecting the entirety of E.C. Segar's original Popeye (a.k.a. Thimble Theatre) comic strips begins with a foreword by Beetle Bailey creator Mort Walker and continues with an introduction by noted film and cartooning critic Donald Phelps. This second volume features work from 1930 to 1932, and most notably includes the debut of Segar's second greatest character: J. Wellington Wimpy. Wimpy stands as a one-of-a-kind icon some 70 years after his creation, the most likeable lowdown cad ever to grace the comics page. Popeye Vol. 2 includes the stories: "Clint Gore" (continued from the cliffhanger last volume); "A One-Way Bank," in which Popeye opens a bank that allows withdrawals but no deposits; a long war story featuring King Blozo that begins with "The Great Rough-House War"; and "Skullyville," which wraps up the daily strips for this volume.

168-page 11" x 17" B&W/color hardcover with die-cut cover $29.95
