Sherm Goes The Wrong Way in “The Race” from Popeye Comics #24


Remember a few months ago when I started posting some old filler comics by Bud Sagendorf? Wait...you don't remember?

These old comics starring "Sherm"  began running as back-up stories inside the Jan-Mar 1952 issue of Popeye comics #19. Click HERE to read the very first "Sherm" comic by Bud Sagendorf.

Today's comic, "Sherm and the Race," is  from Dell Comics’ Popeye #24, April-June 1953. Art and Story by Bud Sagendorf.

That was great!

I've only ever been aware of Sagendorf as the guy who did Popeye and since I'm such a huge Segar fan, I've always viewed Sagendorf with a little chip on my shoulder.

These are great though! Sagendorf as a cartoonist in his own right. I love being exposed to old characters I was never aware of too!

I really liked the 1st story with the cameo by Popeye himself.
