We’re really excited at the ol’ LOAC studio — the first volume of Bobby London’s Popeye will be off to the printer very soon. We’ll reprint Bobby’s complete run of dailies — from 1986 to 1992 — in two fat books (each one containing about 50% more than most strip reprint collections). This is the first time any of us have see the entire strip. There was a small colletion of random dailies in 1988 (Mondo Popeye) but that was it.
Andrew Farago, curator of the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, has written the introductions. He was interviewed recently about the project for the Westfield Comics blog.
