Nancy, Sluggo, Popeye, and John.

  • Reader Garrett points me in the direction of this tableau of horror, featuring Nancy and Sluggo by Jon Vermilyea. Possibly not safe for work, certainly not safe for restful sleep.
  • In response to Mr. Spurgeon’s comment about the Classic Popeye book I wrote about on Wednesday…yes, that is really the actual cover of this reprint, the exact cover the original #1 had back in 1948, plus the “Classic Comics” banner, of course. I hope this series achieves its stated goal of reprinting all the Bud Sagendorf comics, but it’s, what, a hundred comics? That seems like quite the challenge, but even if they don’t get all the way to the end, I’ll certainly enjoy what I get.

    By the way, I had a person in the comments lament the fact that his retailer doesn’t carry this sort of book. Well, I checked on Diamond’s website Thursday evening, and Classic Popeye #1 is still available for reorder, so march on in to your shop, tell ’em “I want one copy of Classic Popeye #1, Diamond order number JUN120397, please” and all it takes is a phone call, email, or visit to the reorders section on the Diamond retailer site, and they should be able to get it for you. While supplies last, of course.

    And if your retailer can’t or won’t get it for you, I will. …Again, while supplies last, so act fast!

  • Bully the Little Stuffed Bull’s pal John has been doing movie reviews for the past week over at Unseen Films, and this little linkie-thing here should take you right to them. It should also bring up older reviews of his on that site, which you should probably read also. You’d better…I’ll be quizzing you later.

    The Suspect Device series is kind of interesting. The artists start with a Nancy panel and end with a Nancy panel and the go from there.

    The second issue should be of even more interest to you as they start with a Garfield panel and end with a Nancy Panel.

    Sometimes it’s touching

    but mostly it’s disgusting and profane but interesting.

    John says thank you for the link, Mike! He’ll be eating it later.

  • Garrett Max says:

    The ice cream cones splattered all over Vermilyea’s pages are what catch my eye. Is this what happens when Nancy ‘n’ Sluggo eat too much ice cream? Or too little?
