This volume contains a nice introduction and nine Popeye tales from the Dell Popeye series between 1948 and 1957. I probably didn’t need to buy this volume, as I have these stories in other formats, but it is a very nicely packaged sampler. My only complaint is the coloring. Some reviewers have argued that this is an accurate representation of the original Dell coloring, but I feel that Craig Yoe and his designers have upped the white balance so much to make the backgrounds and borders pure white that some of the original depth of the other colors has been lost. The same is true of the IDW series of Popeye Classics Comics.
