    Description

    Popeye the Sailor Christmas Retail Display Sign Group of 2 (King Features Syndicate and Puck the Comic Weekly, 1948). Popeye and J. Wellington Wimpy urge their fans to "Try Your Druggist First" when shopping for gifts. Many neighborhood pharmacies of the last century also served as general-merchandise outlets. Wimpy probably even swiped that hamburger (pictured) from the local drugstore's lunch-counter. The unbilled artist approximates the style of Bela Zaboly, one of the more prominent successors to Popeye's creator, Elzie Segar. The two pieces, here, are near-identical, differing slightly in dimensions, and in a die-cut upper edge on the darker article. COA from cartoon-premium guru Gordon K. Gold. Image areas, 8.5" x 10" and 9.5" x 10". Excellent condition; likely unused in their day.
