Snuffy Smith and Popeye?! Well, okay, not exactly…but sort of…  

You see, our daughter Sarah, a senior graphic design major at James Madison University created the variant cover art for the Popeye Classic Comics #55 comic book!  Sarah has been a Popeye fan ever since she was a small child.  Congratulations to Sarah and many thanks to Craig Yoe at Yoe Comics and IDW for selecting her wonderful illustration for the cover!
