Popeye 2009 Original Comic Art Page 80th Anniversary Signed (Time Travel). Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
This 11" X 17" black and white original comic art page was written by Chris Yambar (Bart Simpson Comics) with pencils and inks by Ken Wheaton (New Popeye Comics / Mr. Magoo). It is signed by both artists. The page features the original star, of Thimble Theater, walking from the big dance with his camera and eventually sitting on a park bench with a certain magic Whiffle Hen. The page comes from the 80th Anniversary Premium Comic POPEYE PICNIC no. 1 which also included work by Hy Eisman, George Wildman and George Broderick, Jr.. POPEYE PICNIC was created for the annual character celebration and was printed by Premium Pop Comics with the legal permission of King Features Syndicate. The popularity of this book caused an excitement to reemerge for the character who began to appear once again in his own title a year later. A nice bit of Popeye history and a rare one at that. Suitable for framing. Sent flat with a copy of the now out of print Popeye Picnic Comic book.
