Snuffy and Popeye!!

Our daughter, Sarah, with her Popeye Classic Comics #55 variant cover.

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!

What I Read On My Summer Vacation…

The new Popeye Collection by Bobby London, E-Man by Nicholas Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.

The new Popeye Volume One collection by Bobby London, E-Man: The Early Years by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton and Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man by Carl Barks.  All three of these books are really terrific!

I read these three collections shown above and when I returned home I had the new Nancy book collection by Guy Gilchrist waiting for me in the mail, so now I’ve started that one, as well!
