Friday Night Fights--Shotgun Spinach Style!!

We have a hideously overlong Friday Night Fights this week, but I think you'll find it worth the time.

The wicked Sea Hag has been training a Boo Bird to hate Popeye! Why?






Ooh, that's not good!!

Well, Sea Hag tricks Wimpy (because Sea Hag always tricks Wimpy) into giving Popeye the Boo Bird as a birthday gift!




Uh-oh.


And so, the time has come for the Sea Hag and her minion to strike!!










Sometimes a gal has got to take matters into her own hands!






















And of course, Popeye maintains a great attitude about someone trying to murder him:

ARF! ARF!!

Spacebooger agrees that feeding your family via shotgun is a great time-saver!

Popeye gets shot with spinach in Popeye #29 (1954), as reprinted in Classic Popeye #29 (2014), and the entire thing was a Bud Sagendorf joint.

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why?!? It's the best way to keep the Boo Birds away! So go and vote!!

Arynne--He ate some of Popeye's spinach, liked it, the Sea Hag tried to take it away...so now the bird hates her, and only says BOO! to her!!

I just realized that Popeye stories are basically inversions of Superman stories...With Supes the story revolves around him being threatened with and somehow avoiding a weakening substance; with Popeye it revolves around getting a strengthening substance to him. This is something everyone but me probably figured out years ago.
