  • Remember last volume's cliffhanger? The penultimate installment of this acclaimed reprinting of E.C. Segar's masterpiece, Popeye Volume 5: "What's a Jeep?", begins with "Popeye's Ark: Part Two," the tale of Popeye's eventful reign over Spinachovia — a bleak island populated only by men and lacking all "femininity" — even as Olive Oyl controls the country of Olivia (not to mention the men of Spinachovia). Then in "War Clouds," the two monarchies come tumbling down in a furious battle as Spinachovia is attacked by the tyrannical land-hungry King of Brutia, King Zlobbo! This volume's star is Eugene the Jeep, the rare, friendly, leopard-spotted, and magically endowed little creature. And Segar makes a great addition to the cast in "The Search for Popeye's Poppa," when the ever-cantankerous Poopdeck Pappy is tracked and finally, hilariously found; the title of the follow-up story, "Civilizing Poppa," speaks for itself, as it tells the classic tale of man taming beast as Popeye guides a stubborn Pappy through table manners. The adventures of Popeye, Olive, Wimpy, Swee'Pea and the gang on the top are complemented with the riotously funny bonus strip "Sappo," including a somewhat self-referential storyline where the titular character becomes a cartoonist and teaches the craft to his friend, Professor Wotasnozzle.

Review:

“One of the great geniuses of the comic strip form, E.C. Segar created work that represents some of America’s finest art in its epic scale, colloquial language, daffy humor and themes of romance and commerce... Not to be missed.”
- Time

“I consider the Popeye run of E.C. Segar’s strip one of the towering achievements in comics. [The volumes] contain some of the greatest humor comics of all time... within a package so solid and lovely looking I would have purchased it had it housed seven years of Marvin.”
- Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter

“The perfect comic strip.”
- Charles M. Schulz
