Bud Sagendorf Thimble Theatre Starring Popeye Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-23-65 (King Features Syndicate, 1965). Sagendorf enjoyed the most direct kinship to Popeye short of its creator -- serving an apprenticeship to E.C. Segar during the 1930s and then gradually assuming the lead position of author-artist. This delightful example of Popeye a la Sagendorf features a confrontation between the famous sailor-man and his chronic antagonist, Bluto the Terrible, alias Brutus. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Excellent condition.
