Segar: POPEYE Hires a Cartoonist 1934

Here's a 1934 daily sequence from E.C. Segar's THIMBLE THATER, wherein the Popeye has decided to run a newspaper. Chaos, as only Segar can do it, obviously follows.

This was, at least, the second time Segar poked fun at newspaper cartoonists. The first such story appeared in 1928, a year before Popeye appeared in the strip.

The sequence was pulled from Rick Marshall's NEMO #3, October 1983.
