Description

In the third volume of the E.C. Segar Popeye Sundays,
Popeye and company embark on a gothic adventure
on the high seas!
Volume three centers around the epic Popeye adventure, "Plunder
Island," in which our endearing cast of characters takes to the
high seas in search of buried treasure - but must contend with the
ruthless Sea Hag and her strange sidekick, Alice the Goon. Steeped
in shadow and gothic imagery, this tale is an atmospheric and suspenseful
departure from the typical Popeye aesthetic - with a little
screwball comedy thrown in for good measure. Also in this volume,
Popeye proves to be a one-man wrecking crew on the gridiron,
Wimpy tries his unsteady hand at duck shooting (uh-oh!), and the
crew ride out to the Wild West town of Slither Creek on a rip-roaring
gold-hunting expedition. Plus, contemporary Filipino cartoonist Bong Redila
pens a lighthearted comic homage to the iconic, eerie duo headlining this volume.
An irresistible alchemy of slapstick humor, tender romance, and rags-to-riches
fantasy, Elsie Crisler Segar's newspaper comic strip, starring Popeye the sailor man,
captivated readers of the Roaring Twenties and beyond. Fantagraphics is thrilled to
bring Segar's whimsical world back into print, collecting the complete Popeye Sunday
stories in four gorgeous full-color volumes, each packaged in a die cut slipcase.
E.C. Segar (1894-1938) was an American cartoonist known for creating Popeye, the
star of his comic series Thimble Theatre. Bong Redila is a Filipino American illustrator
and author based in Miami, Florida. His previous book with Fantagraphics was
Meläg: Town of Fables (2022).
