Popeye meets Eugene the Jeep by HammersonHoek Popeye meets Eugene the Jeep by HammersonHoek
A Popeye drawing from two weeks ago, done very quickly. I wanted to upload it to the Scraps, because I don't like it much. There's something weird about it, and I can't pinpoint what's the problem (if any). Anybody wants to confirm my opinion, or tell me few reasons why I should change my mind?

Another Popeye from me: [link]

Popeye and Eugene the Jeep (C) King Features Syndicate and the Hearst Corporation

The Jeep's forebears came from the 4th Dimension, hence it's teleporting power and it's foreknowing the FUTURE ! It also had the power to shrivel witches !

Only Segar drew canonical Popeye. Successors turned the characters into chuckleheads -and the last artist, Bobby London, so offended the newspaper syndicate that he was fired ,the story scrapped and the strip went permanently into re-runs.

Which was a pity. Bobby London was the closest to a successful modern reinvention of Popeye.

That is debatable at best.
Bobby London was a pornographer for National Lampoon. I've never seen any SFW material from him. Dirty Duck was a pervert who went all the way.

I think the "stiches" on the jeeps mouth actually look pretty Segarian, if that's a word.

the only tiny flaw is the Jeep's mouth that looks sewed shut, so poor Jeepy looks like a stuffed toy. Otherwise it's wonderful to see this great hero freshened up.
