This second volume of the acclaimed hit series collecting the entirety of E.C. Segar's original Popeye (a.k.a. Thimble Theatre) comic strips begins with a foreword by Beetle Bailey creator Mort Walker, and continues with an introduction by noted film and cartooning critic Donald Phelps. This second volume features work from 1930 to 1932, and most notably includes the debut of Segar's second greatest character: J. Wellington Wimpy, which stands as a one-of-a-kind icon some 70 years after his creation - the most likeable lowdown cad ever to grace the comics page. Popeye Volume 2 includes the stories: "Clint Gore" (continued from the cliffhanger last volume); "A One-Way Bank," in which Popeye opens a bank that allows withdrawals but no deposits; a long war story featuring King Blozo that begins with "The Great Rough-House War"; and "Skullyville," which wraps up the daily strips for this volume.

About the Author:

E.C. Segar (1894-1938), creator of Popeye, is a member of the Will Eisner Awards Hall of Fame. He was born in Chester, IL in 1894 and passed away in his longtime home of Santa Monica, CA. The National Cartoonists Society created the Elzie Segar Award in his honor, which was awarded annually to a cartoonist who has made a unique and outstanding contribution to the profession.

From Publishers Weekly:

Looking back to an era when comics were mainly about being funny, this lovingly produced coffee-table volume in the Complete Popeye series reprints Thimble Theatre strips from 1930 to 1932, in both color and black and white. By this time, the original leading characters of Segar's troupe had become a supporting cast for the one-eyed, cantankerous sailor with an odd sense of chivalry, a love of spinach and a massive pair of fists. In this volume, Popeye and his sweetie, the gangly spinster, Olive Oyl, subdue western bad men and settle the war between Tonsylania and Nazilia, while enjoying their testy courtship. Readers won't find the two-page spreads and camera angles they're used to in modern comics, but a rich, colorful soap opera full of wonderful moments. They won't run into much pretentious social commentary, either, though the episode in which Olive's brother, Castor, and Popeye open a One-Way Bank to give away money to needy people may have felt especially relevant during the Great Depression. Mainly, Popeye just punches out any guy in his way, the more pompous and tough-looking the better. As he tells Olive, I yam what I yam an' tha's all I yam! Segar's wildly fertile imagination is more than enough. (Dec.)
