    Description

    E. C. Segar - Popeye Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 10-1-33 (King Features Syndicate, 1933). When it comes to getting his mitts around a tasty-fresh hamburger, J. Wellington Wimpy shows no mercy! This shocker is often cited as the most controversial strip that E. C. Segar ever drew. Though accepted by King Features Syndicate, this episode was censored by many of the nation's newspapers, who deemed it too grisly for their readers. For many years, this remarkable Sunday was housed in the collection of Bud Sagendorf, who started out as Segar's assistant, and then took over the feature after Segar's untimely passing. This Sunday has an image area of 20" x 16", and the art is in Excellent condition. From the Estate of Bruce Hamilton.
