Swee'Pea gets a charming 10 page retelling of sorts of his back-story in the cover feauture "How Prince Swee'pea Came From Spinachovia". I found the scene in which they play a game of Monopoly especially funny for some reason.
After that, we're treated to four shorts, including one with Sappo, who was getting less and less exposure in the series by this point.
A few hit and misses, but over all a rather enjoyable issue,all wrapped up in a cover and interior art by George Wildman with writing by Nick Cuti.
Thanks for this! Any time I find an old Popeye comic, it's usually way beyond a price I can afford, so this is great.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it! There's many more to come, as I plan to post at least one Popeye issue every other week.Delete
Actually, Popeye #108 came about eight years before the 50th anniversary. By that time, George (still editor at Charlton) was doing the Popeye art for Western, which is where the big 50th birthday bash was published.ReplyDelete
I think I've posted this on the wrong page! My apologies. Thought I was still on Popeye #108. Sorry!Delete
