Tuesday Comic Strip Day.
Over the last few years I have been showing some of Bud Sagendorf's early Popeye Sunays. They are a forgotten gem, displaying all of his qualities at a time when newspaper strips were still given the room they need. In August of 1959 Bud Sagendorf took over the daily strip from Ralph Stein (co-signed by Bill Zaboly, who was supposed to have written it - although I am not sure if he actually did at that point). He immediately drops all of the Stein-introduced new characters and returns to the old favorites, starting with Popaye's dad.
