Popeye: An Illustrated Cultural History, 2nd edition

Popeye: An Illustrated Cultural History, 2nd edition


It's a rare comic character who can make audiences laugh for well over half a century--but then again, it's a pretty rare cartoon hero who can boast of forearms thicker than his waist, who can down a can of spinach in a single gulp, or who generally faces the world with one eye squinted completely shut. When E.C. Segar's gruff but lovable sailor man first tooted his pipe to the public on January...   [click here for more]

Walt Kelly and Pogo: The Art of the Political Swamp

Walt Kelly and Pogo: The Art of the Political Swamp


One of the most popular comic strips of the 1950s and the first to reference politics of the day, Walt Kelly's Pogo took on Joe McCarthy before the controversial senator was a blip on Edward R. Murrow's radar. The strip's satire was so biting, it was often relegated to newspaper editorial sections at a time when artists in other media were blacklisted for far less. Pogo was the vanguard of today's...   [click here for more]
