    E. C. Segar Popeye Daily Comic Strip Featuring Bluto Original Art dated 9-24-32 (King Features Syndicate, 1932). This daily features a raucous round from the historic first slugfest between Popeye and his arch-nemesis, Bluto. Few, if any, comic strip characters enjoyed a knock-down, drag-out fight as much as E. C. Segar's pugnacious powerhouse, Popeye. This episode hails from the milestone story, "The Eighth Sea," which kicked-off on September 12, 1932 when Bluto promised to kill Popeye at daybreak. The titanic fist-fight started on 9-20-32 and ran until 9-30-32! However, as the title suggests, the squinky-eyed sailor is "Not at the end of his rope" in this episode. This slam-bang daily was created in ink over graphite with blue pencil shading, and an image area of 20.5" x 4.5". Signed in the last panel and in Eggs-ka-lunt... er, Excellent condition. Arf arf arf!

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
