Popeye...


Is this not the most disturbing Popeye comic you have ever seen?
I had to replace the text because it was hard as heck to read (some of it I had to guess at, but it's as close as I could get it).
I have always loved Wimpy, but.............. sheesh-- he crossed a line here...

Don't be too hard on Wimpy - he has a hamburger Monkey on his back that he hasn't been able to shake.

Still the cartoon is pretty gruesome; I don't know what's worse - the decapitated head and hooves, the giant pile of meat or the fact that Wimpy is having a converstation with himself (could it be temporary insanity brought on by the sudden consumption of large quantities of red meat?)

That last panel is one worthy of the best EC comic.

And what was Popeye thinking letting Wimpy have an ax and whatever else?

Maybe Popeye was going through Spinach withdrawal and wasn't thinking clearly.
