This vintage "Popeye the Sailor" comic book is the standard size, roughly 10-1/8" x 6.75" and is fair to average condition. The pages are a bit yellowed, and there are some minor bends and scuffs to the cover.
The first story is titled "Love-In," and tells what happens when Olive Oyl decides to "find happiness in a world of messy hair, dirty clothes and love-love-love."
The "Swee' Pea!" comic strip is about an alien spaceship disguised as a trash can. There are also Beetle Bailey, Pete the Tramp, Test of Strength, and Fun Office cartoons in this issue. The retro ads include two for Flash Gordon and one for the Phantom.
