Nemo number 3: E.C. Segar, Popeye and the Thimble Theatre

"Nemo: the Classic Comics Library" #3 from October 1983.


The contents that are bursting the seams of this one...

Editorial by Richard Marschall sharing his love of comics art and storytelling...


The genius of Elzie Crisler Segar. One of my top 5 heroes in the realm of the comic strip. Incredible cartoonist, master of characterization...true pinnacle of the medium.

Reading these pages just serves as a reminder that I only have the first volume of the Thimble Theatre series published by Fantagraphics. I need to get on the stick and get the rest of them before they go OOP.

I have the series they released 25 years ago. I had all but 2 volumes for years (well, I guess decades) and finally filled those 2 gaps a couple of years ago. Then they recently started the color and higher quality series...sigh. I would like a do-over.
