NOTE: Sale extended until June 21! Remember, take $40.00 off the listed prices! Take $60.00 off per page if you buy more than one!

Well folks, we're having an interesting time here -- and by interesting, I mean a whole lot of unexpected expenses have popped up (much-needed car repairs, etc.) -- and the bank account is a bit shy of what we need.  So -- time for some art sales! 

Offered here are what I have left of the original hand-inked pages from the remarkably well-received MARS ATTACKS POPEYE comic book, published by IDW. These were inked in pen on 11x17 bristol board over blue-line print outs of my digital pencils. Lettering is (mostly) digital and printed on the board -- a font of my creation based on vintage Popeye strip lettering.

As you can see, I have 9 of the 22 pages available here. I kept a few pages, and writer Martin Powell was given the "Wha's a Marshkin?" page -- the rest have been sold or traded.  Kansas City folks can see some -- including the double page spread, on display at Clint's Comics.  

The prices listed are my original asking price -- but for the purposes of this sale, for ONE WEEK only, starting today, you can take $40.00 off the per page price -- take $60.00 per page off if you buy more than one. I'll cover shipping costs (in the US). 

This may be my one and only shot at drawing Popeye for print -- and once this small batch of pages is gone, it's gone. Contact me at to reserve pages and for payment info (Paypal preferred). First come, first served, as they say. T'anks for lookin' and remembers to eats yer spinach! Arf arf arf!!!
