Review: Popeye #10 and 11
Issue number 11 features the return of Bluto, who comes to town as a magician with a vaudeville troupe. He threatens to steal Olive Oyl, and in fact makes her disappear during his act. Popeye rescues her as Wimpy and his ventriloquist dummy scares Bluto out of town. A top notch script by Langridge that turns up the humor. In fact there are a couple laugh out loud moments, I think a first for the IDW series. Musacchia returns to do the art, and its even better than the previous issue. Issue 11 earns a strong A.
