    Description

    E.C. Segar - Popeye Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 8-21-38 (King Features Syndicate,1938). J. Wellington Wimpy's gift for gab is showcased in this side-splitting Sunday. His scheme to pitch woo at Olive Oyl is drawn with the timing and staging of a true comedic genius. As the final tier shows, there is no doubt that the hilarious E. C. Segar ranks right alongside other giants of humor such as Jack Benny, Groucho Marx, and Bob Hope. As Segar once said, "Popeye is much more than a goofy character to me. He represents all my emotions, and he is an outlet for them. I'd like to cut loose and knock the heck out of a lot of people, but my good judgement and size hold me back." The art is in Excellent condition, and the size is approximately 21.5" x 18". With Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Wimpy on an E. C. Segar drawn page, this Sunday will create quite a stir among comic strip collectors.
