    Popeye is a great read for those who want to recall the past and have an easy laugh. It's also a greatbook for children, who will no doubt enjoy the antics and the bold colors of the book. The art and writing bothpay homage to past work. Well done! Read Full Review

    Overall, I still like Popeye, even though the story felt a little long winded there are still enough elements in the book that I really enjoyed in terms of character’s dialogue and art that makes me appreciate this book, and because of those two elements I will continue checking it out.

    The second story also harkens to a trope best left behind. This time it's the badgering wife and her poor husband, who just wants to rest. The pair, Sappo and Myrtle, have Professor O.G. Wotasnozzle for a boarder, and soon, he's devising ways for the couple to either keep away or get at each other. Tom Neely shines at making innovating inventions and merging Popeye's visual style with just a hint of Robert Crumb, which was pretty cool to see in action. Overall, however, Langridge is just a bit too faithful to the source this time. Hopefully next issue will return to form. Read Full Review
