If you’ve ever wondered whether your vintage video games could be worth something, Heritage Auctions is now accepting “slabbed” video games as part of their collection.

From Comica Comiket in London on Saturday… Popeye V Superman: Dawn Of Spinach… I like it! IDW, you’ve been doing DC Comics crossovers, you publish Popeye, any chance?
Deadline reports Sony‘s animated Popeye feature has a new writer in the form of T.J. Fixman.

So, yes, the last few issues of Harley Quinn have seen them battling Captain Horatio Strong, a buff Popeye lookalike with an addiction to power-giving alien seaweed. Though obviously, he’s an evil Popeye. And must be dealt with. So how, in the world of Harley Quinn does Captain Horatio Strong get dealt with? Why, […]
In a segment that looks like its right out of the 1950s, Fox & Friends this morning did a report that started off with what they called the “wussification” of Popeye and lead to complaints about Thor being a woman and Wonder Woman not being in short shorts and a halter top in the new […]
Director Genndy Tartakovsky (Hotel Transylvania, Star Wars: Clone Wars) is heading up Sony Pictures Animation upcoming CG Popeye movie. In the below video we get to see an animation test he did with Sony that shows Popeye, Olive Oyl, Eugene the Jeep and Bluto on a ship. The voices are temporary and no casting has […]
The Las Vegas Licensing Expo is underway right now and among all of the completely boring reveals of logotypes and title treatments for films that don’t even have titles yet – 2015’s Mission: Impossible, 2016’s Planet of the Apes – there’s the odd gem… Apparently not on the show floor is anything to do with […]
Yesterday, we ran a Swipe File piece based on Cartoon Brew’s fine observational skills regarding the Jeff Koons stainless steel Popeye statue that sold for $28,200,00 and its similarity to a Dark Horse Comics Popeye toy from a few years ago, part of a set that sold for $40 then and about $75 now. Though if […]
Jeff Koons has created a six-and-a-half foot, two thousand pound, stainless steel statue of Popeye, auctioned for $28,200,000 by Sothebys to casino owner and art buyer Steve Wynn.

Timothy Carson writes: I am running out of ways to excitedly proclaim that The Walking Dead has reached the summit of charts worldwide. So go buy something else, people. I’m kidding! Anyways, according to ComiXology sales last week taken from iOS in-app purchase charts, The Walking Dead holds strong at number one across the majority […]
All three films will be released over the next two to three years.
Not so fast, Locke & Key: Alpha #2, we’ve only just started our run through the day’s comic books. Just no one ask exactly what is being… wiped away, here. And yes, it’s the final issue of this wonderful series. Watch it go out with a bang. Thanks for that Uncanny Avengers, giving us a […]
Here come the IDW solicitations for January 2014… the start of a new Pony comic, an X-Files crossover with the rest of the titles, a new book called Purgatory by Joe Halpin Sr. and Juanfrancisco Guerrero, Dan Goldman’s Red Light Properties and Lorraine Turner’s Calico Horses and the Patchwork Trail… lots to dig into The […]
It looks like a Cable sale is being launched through Marvel and ComiXology on Friday, issues 1-25 of his most recent series are currently 99 cents each in the UK, as are issues 1-15 of the first X-Force series – watch that price hit the US in a few hours. But what else was selling […]
Hotel Transylvania 2 set for a September 2015 release.
Perhaps the most exciting thing about Walt Disney’s Tangled was how the CG animation rigs for the characters became complex enough to offer up something more like the kind of extreme expressions and bold poses more familiar in 2D animation. Now it’s Sony’s turn to push that envelope, as Genndy Tartakovsky has gotten ambitious with […]
In the European Union, Popeye went into the public domain back in 2009, but not in the US It seems to be down to Popeye being labelled work for hire in the US, and thus a beneficiary of the “Disney Laws” that extend such ownership, currently until the end of 2024. Until it gets changed […]
Showing some confidence in Hotel Transylvania, Sony have routed its director Genndy Tartakovsky to hop over and develop and direct their 3D Popeye movie. This is likely to cause, or at least exploit, further delay for his Samurai Jack picture. I’d like both, please. And a revival for the old Popeye arcade game. It may […]
