Popeye!

So the news has finally been officially announced - I'm writing Popeye for IDW. (There's a piece at CBR about it here.) First issue will be out in April, apparently. I blab on enough about it in the article, so I'll spare you too much of that here; suffice to say I've wanted to work on the character since I was 10. Quite, quite giddy with delight.

  5. Hi, Roger. Can I use this drawing of Popye with an announcement of the new series in a Dutch comic weekly and what should te copyright notice be? Alongside an image of the cover, of coure. You can reply me here or at my blog, where I will soon have more Thimble Theatres!

  6. Go nuts! Actually, there's a colour one here if you prefer:

    I guess the copyright notice would be ©2012 King Features Syndicate - those are the guys approving the scripts (or not approving, in one case - the joys of working on licensed properties).

    And thanks again for the Thimble Theatres!
