Synopsis: With this fourth volume of our beloved series, Segar's Popeye reaches one of its highest peaks in "Plunder Island," the glorious, epic-length Sunday-continuity adventure that ran for eight months and pitted the intrepid sailorman against the malevolent Sea Hag and the Goon - helped, and sometimes hindered by, the easily corruptible J. Wellington Wimpy. "Plunder Island" is presented here for the first time in its full, full-color, uncut glory! Meanwhile, in the "dailies" section of Popeye Volume 4: Plunder Island, Popeye visits "Poodleburg," gets involved in a quest for both "Romance and Riches," and much more. Comics historian Richard Marschall contributes an article on Segar's storytelling skills and narrative strategies, focusing in particular on the "Plunder Island" sequence. Rediscover an American treasure in this handsomely designed series to be enjoyed by comic fans of all ages.
