Philoskopy 101: The Wisdom of Popeye

Ahoy, swabs! Have you been looking for someone to help you navigate life's choppy seas? Do you need assistance in dealing with the Goons in your life? Good news! Popeye is here, with practical advice to keep you on the right path. Author of thirty books, including the bestsellers I Yam What I Yam...And You Can Too! and Sees Ya Ats The Top!, this sailor has learned much while circumnavigating the globe, and he's more than happy to share his sage wisdom with you! Light a stick of spinach-scented incense and read on, seeker!

  5. I love Popeye and enjoyed looking through these. Thank you.

  6. Irrelevant to everything, have you got/come across scans of the August '64 Esquire 5-page parody of Mad, "Bad"? Apparently it was written by an uncredited (and bitter) Harvey Kurtzman. I saw it mentioned in Squa Tront #12, but couldn't find it online...
