Fantagraphics' Popeye collects the complete run of Segar's Thimble Theatre comic strip featuring Popeye, re-establishing Segar as one of the first rank of cartoonists who have elevated the comic strip to art. He was the most popular cartoonist of his day, his sense of humor coming straight out of Mark Twain, who also balanced exaggerated tall tales and a perfect ear for everyday speech with dark themes that undercut his laugh-out-loud stories.

Our Popeye series runs for six volumes and includes bonus strips, scholarly essays, and other extras.
