POPEYE Big Little Books


TC said...

Did these reprint the comic strips, complete with word balloons? Or did they adapt the stories to the usual BLB format? (Alternating text and pictures on every other page.)

Whitman published some BLBs in the late 1960s. They were similar to the 1940s versions, but the pictures were in color instead of B&W. Two of them starred Popeye, in (AFAIK) original stories.

Sadly, I don't own any of these. But all the vintage BLBs I've seen were without word balloons.

I seem to remember a Smokey Stover BLB that had word balloons instead of text. But maybe my memory is playing tricks.
