It’s possible that because I previously read and reviewed issue #1 I have familiarised myself with the visual language of Popeye, felt less alienated and therefore fooled myself into thinking that Sagendorf’s writing is better in issue #2 - but I’d rather believe that these stories are genuinely funnier. The punchlines are better, there’s a few more knowing in-jokes from Sagendorf to the reader and the stories were more tightly focused on Popeye’s core cast of supporting characters. If you enjoyed the first issue of Classic Popeye you’ll enjoy this even more and if you are yet to sample some of these vintage Popeye comics then you should give the second a try; it’s just good ol’ fashioned fun and it’s sure to be an interesting addition to your collection.
