Popeye Volume 4: Swee'Pea & Eugene the Jeep

On sale date: November 19, 2024

In the fourth and final volume of the E.C. Segar Popeye Sundays, meet the most whimsical character of the Popeye universe!

This dynamic concluding volume introduces a curious creature from the fourth dimension — Eugene the Jeep! The minute this mysterious marvel with the power of teleportation arrives on the scene, the strip is infused with an oddball, otherworldly quality. Elsewhere, Wimpy continues his befuddling antics; the wily orphan Swee’Pea and the patriarch Poopdeck Pappy cause domestic hijinks; and Popeye does battle with the big bad Man from Mars! Plus, contemporary artist Kayla E. pens a comic homage to the topsy-turvy character headlining this volume.

An irresistible alchemy of screwball comedy, tender romance, and rags-to-riches fantasy, Elsie Crisler Segar’s newspaper comic strip, starring Popeye the sailor man, captivated readers of the Roaring Twenties and beyond. Fantagraphics is thrilled to bring Segar’s whimsical world back into print, collecting the complete Popeye Sunday stories in four gorgeous full-color volumes, each packaged in a die-cut vertical slipcase.

Popeye Volume 4: Swee'Pea & Eugene the Jeep is part of the Popeye series.

Praise

"Nearly every episode collected here reveals Segar to be an absurdly hilarious master draftsman and wildly entertaining storyteller. … An essential volume of both graphic storytelling and early 20th-century art." — Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Perfect for a classic cartoon fan. Its focus on relatable themes like love, romance, and daffy humor make it a series readers should not miss." — Screen Rant
