    E.C. Segar - Popeye Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 11-20-37 (King Features Syndicate, 1937). Popeye and Wimpy are shanghaied by Limbo, the goon, in this great daily from the "Valley of the Goons" story. This is an extremely scarce "black daily". Syndicate guidelines generally forbade the use of solid black areas as it was very troublesome to print evenly in the daily papers. This rule was obviously waived for this atmospheric nighttime scene.The overall paper size measures 5.5" x 22", while the image area is 4.5" x 20.5". The art is in Excellent condition. The "Valley of the Goons" is one of the greatest of all Popeye tales and here's a splendid opportunity to press-gang one into your collection!
