I've never had a chance to read more then a few of the weekly strips randomly posted online back when we first got internet (like age 14). They still pretty good yeah?

correct answers are jughead and jughead

Jughead was the best, but I remember Reggie being such a shitsack that it was hard not to enjoy him. I remember thinking the Betty-centric stories where funny but could not tell you a single plot of any of them.

But yeah I had one of the Jughead Digest issues from like 88 or 89 and there was a story on how he thought that every girl tasted like cherry pie. It was so absurd that I'm fascinated it got published

As far as I know the original run (Segar) was the best, which is what I read as a kid (think it was a Sea Hag saga) but his successor (Sagendorf) also had a good run also. The rest is variable quality I think.

The Max Fleischer cartoons (esp. Popeye Meets Sindbad) were technical animation marvels at the time, introducing a table of miniature models that had an animation wheel circling around it, providing an animation overlay over a 3D environment. The post-Fleischer cartoons are of variable quality

Now I have watched some of the Fleischer cartoons and probably all of the latter colored ones from like the 40s onward as a kid, but I'm under the impression the OG comic had a lot more going on then the cartoons normally did.

IIRC The cartoons just kinda fell into a template of "Bad Guy Bad, Popeye gets shit kicked out of him, spinach happens, que the theme song"


Also @ SunFan if you really wanna blow your mind about Max Fleischer check out his rotoscoping work it's literally the work of Satan and people in the 30s thought it was the future

"The work of Satan" is a little to heavy for that
honestly, it was neat
no wonder things looked so smooth, albeit that had to be a shitload of work

Yeah the comics were generally adventure-themed, like "Popeye goes on a treasure hunt" kinda stuff and had plotlines that lasted several weeks. Spinach is barely even a thing for most of it. A good portion of it is Popeye fucking around with people or just beating the shit out of anyone who looks at him funny. It's great

The Fleischer ones are pretty much the formula you described, but I think those cartoons are the foundation of the modern image of Popeye as opposed to the flanderization of the 1950s-1970s Popeye cartoons that were essentially Post-Chuck Jones Looney Tunes except worse.

to clarify, I'm pretty sure the Fleischer cartoons created the spinach superpower angle which has persisted almost 90 years later
