Description

More than a decade before creating the world's most famous cartoon sailor, Elzie Crisler Segar drew the Charlie Chaplin comic strip, a daily strip about Chicago entertainment, and then Thimble Theatre, where Popeye was to be born. This volume features examples of all of Segar's early comics and over 100 pre-Popeye Thimble Theatre Sunday pages, including the complete run of the famed Western desert saga, a series that rivals his later work in art, storytelling and humor. These comics, most of which have never been reprinted before, are now here for the whole popeyed world to see.
