Popeye's Boss from the Toledo News-Bee, 9 Feb 1934. Elzie Segar was one of the few cartoonists who could rightly be described as a comic genius. I recently began reading the first volume of Fantagraphics collected POPEYE "I Yam What I Yam!" I bought the book 3 months ago and have just begun reading about the sailor with "red ink in my veins." Once I'm done I will order volume 2 -- lovely stuff and highly recommended.
