  • Remember last volume's cliffhanger? The penultimate installment of thisacclaimed reprinting of E.C. Segar's masterpiece, Popeye Volume 5:"What's a Jeep?", begins with "Popeye's Ark: Part Two," the tale of Popeye'seventful reign over Spinachovia — a bleak island populated only by men andlacking all "femininity" — even as Olive Oyl controls the country ofOlivia (not to mention the men of Spinachovia). Then in "War Clouds," the twomonarchies come tumbling down in a furious battle as Spinachovia is attacked bythe tyrannical land-hungry King of Brutia, King Zlobbo! This volume's star isEugene the Jeep, the rare, friendly, leopard-spotted, and magically endowedlittle creature. And Segar makes a great addition to the cast in "The Search forPopeye's Poppa," when the ever-cantankerous Poopdeck Pappy is tracked andfinally, hilariously found; the title of the follow-up story, "CivilizingPoppa," speaks for itself, as it tells the classic tale of man taming beast asPopeye guides a stubborn Pappy through table manners. The adventures of Popeye,Olive, Wimpy, Swee'Pea and the gang on the top are complemented with theriotously funny bonus strip "Sappo," including a somewhat self-referentialstoryline where the titular character becomes a cartoonist and teaches the craftto his friend, Professor Wotasnozzle.

Popeye meets his Pappy! Plus Swee’Pea and the Jeep!
