Pity these "Sappo" backup strips stopped with the dark and paranoid stuff and moved to "my wife won't let me go to the poker game" bullshit.

It's strange that they put the Sunday strips at the end of this book. It means suddenly coming back and realizing that Popeye and Olive's relationship had gotten startede already, and that Ham Gravy was on his way out.

Comic strip Popeye is do much more bad-ass than cartoon Popeye.

I actually really like Popeye and Castor Oyl's relationship, they play off each other very well.

Oh boy, more racist images. Ah well, for the period there really are very few and they aren't all THAT bad. At least not considering the context.

The Sea Hag is like a Gorey character dropped into a 30s slapstick cartoon.

Dorgs don't mean nothin' to me -- I just as soon crack a bleed hound as a hooman.

The (I'm pretty sure) fake 20s slang used here is hilarious: "What do you think of me now? I know my onions, eh?"

It's too bad Castor Oyl was never in the cartoons, he's a fun character.
