Profiled: Popeye cartoonist Hy Eisman

The Glen Rock Patch posted a profile of Hy Eisman the current cartoonist for E.C. Segar’s Popeye.

But the 84-year-old Eisman – just 2 years old when Popeye the Sailor Man debuted in the King Features comic strip “Thimble Theater” in 1929 – does more than just continue to turn out the weekly strip featuring a man who is “strong to the finich ’cause I eats me spinach.”

He also does another King Features classic The Katzenjammer Kids.
