Now in stock: Popeye Vol. 4: Plunder Island by E.C. Segar
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Popeyenew releasesEC Segar 30 Nov 2009 5:37 AM

Just arrived in our warehouse and ready to ship:

Popeye Vol. 4: Plunder Island by E.C. Segar

Popeye Vol. 4: "Plunder Island"
By E.C. Segar

With this fourth volume of our beloved series, Segar’s Popeye reaches one of its highest peaks in “Plunder Island,” the glorious, epic-length Sunday-continuity adventure that ran for eight months and pitted the intrepid sailorman against the malevolent Sea Hag and her terrifying, grotesque sidekick the Goon — helped, and sometimes hindered by, the easily corruptible J. Wellington Wimpy. “Plunder Island” is presented here for the first time in its complete, full-color, uncut glory!

Meanwhile, in the “dailies” section of Popeye Volume 4, Popeye visits “Poodleburg” and gets involved in a quest for both “Romance and Riches.” Other stories include “Unifruit” (featuring the return of King Blozo), the western epic “Black Valley” (with the unforgettable sight of Popeye in drag), “The Pool of Youth” (featuring the return of the Sea Hag... and her sister!); and the beginning of the extended six-month-long yarn “Popeye’s Ark”!

Comics historian Richard Marschall rounds off this volume with a long article on Segar’s storytelling skills and narrative strategies, focusing in particular on the “Plunder Island” sequence. Rediscover an American treasure in this handsomely designed series to be enjoyed by comic fans of all ages.

Download an EXCLUSIVE 15-page PDF excerpt (6.4 MB) with 5 pages of Sundays and 10 pages of dailies!
