The Art and History of Popeye (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


When cartoonist Elzie Segar created Popeye, as a minor

character ten years into the run of the Thimble Theatre strip in 1929,

little did he know that the world's most famous sailor would still be around

over ninety years later and still being offered as a Sunday feature.

To celebrate Popeye, the character, the comic

strip and his universe, a feature cartoonist Charles M. Schulz described as

"perfect... consistent in drawing and humor," Hermes Press is

publishing the definitive art monograph on the


This 300 plus page book features a

comprehensive essay written by pop culture historian R.C. Harvey accompanied by

over 350 illustrations of original strip and comic book art, animation art,

illustrations, advertising art, products, the Robert Altman film, and everything

Popeye. Every aspect of Popeye is explored, from Olive Oyl and

Eugene the Jeep to Wimpy and Bluto.

So, if

you've ever read the strip, watched the cartoons, seen the movie, or ever eaten

spinach and wondered if you'll have super-powers, this new comprehensive history

is a must.
